Game 2 @ Morwell.
Traralgon headed to Morwell to take on the Morwell Cougars and the Churchill Braves for Round 2. The Braves forfit the Under 16's.
The kids had a ball in their first outing of the season. Brian Dillon kept the children moving and gave them all a very fair go. They don't keep score in Tee ball but if they did then I think they won by a long way.
This is only my understanding. I beleive that we went down by 2 runs. I heard that it was a great hit out between last years premiers and the team that we knocked off in the final but the Cougars had a little more in the tank and ran out narrow victors. I will update this blurb once I find out a little more.
