Layritz holds on to win a marathon 16-15 over Gordon Head
June 29, 2017 – At Lambrick Park on the last day of the GVBA Championship Week Layritz wins the 15U Bantam AA city final 16-15 over Gordon Head.
After the game, lasting 3 hours and 4 minutes, Layritz wins the Bantam AA Trophy.
In a game that featured 90 combined plate appearances due to several miscues by both teams, it was a scoreless 7th that ended the evening.
Layritz took the early lead with a 4-run top of the 1st, only for Gordon Head to wrestle the lead back with a 6-run bottom of the 2nd. The lead would change a couple more times before Layritz move ahead for good after 4 in the 4th plus 3 in the 5th and 6th innings. Trailing 16-9 going into the bottom of the 6th Gordon Head brought 6 men across the plate to pull within one at 16-15. A scoreless top of the 7th left the door open, but after loading the bases with two out a high fly ball to right field ended the comeback attempt. It was a hard-fought game by both teams and hats off to Layritz for their win.
There were a lot of exciting plays and runs score but no one more excited than Ty seen here scoring.
An excited Ty Ferreira scores on a double by Woo Park in the 4th as Layritz #16 Dawson Harrison celebrates.
