Well done to the Mariners A who beat the North Stars 3-1 on Saturday to progress to the semi-final of the playoffs against the Spartans. Hard luck to the B team who were knocked out of the playoffs yesterday by Cavan Comets.
Jaime Cuevas pitched a complete game, nullifying the potent North Stars lineup. Good defense from Tommy Hernandez and the rest of the team helped Jaime’s effort. Daniel Woodburne continued his hot-hitting with a 4 hit day. Despite a strong outing from the North Stars lefty Jon Carter the team managed to create enough runs to see them through.
Next Saturday at 11.30 am the Mariners will face the Spartans in Corkagh park. The winner will advance to the final to face the Hurricanes in a best of three playoff. The Mariners have never reached the final before.
