With a huge comeback in the bottom of the 9th, the Golden Years eked out a 13 -12 victory over the Grey Beards to win the 2016 OMMSPL League Championship.
Down by three runs, in the bottom of the 9th inning, consecutive hits by Bill Langdon, Charlie Withnell and John Good set stage. Ian Carson then knocked in the tying run and after a Don Dash single, Laurence Drew drove a ball into Right Centre to cash Carson from 3rd with the winning run. A great game by both teams and a fitting finish to a very competitive season.
The following are the results from the Consolation Finals:
WHITE HAIRS 20 GREEN GIMPS 3
RED FACES 8 BLUE PILLS 7
FINE WINES 17 RUSTY ROYALS 3
