Sabre-tooth out to knock top dogs

LAST time the Western Suburbs Sabre-tooth played number one side Across The Waves, the difference was only two runs.

Wests’ narrow loss belied the fact that a majority of their team had never played the sport before.

“I’m very proud of my boys, watching them develop and improve so rapidly,” coach Michelle McKeown said.

“The boys are pushing to keep their top-four spot. I think if they make semi finals they could go all the way.”

“The boys want to knock Waves off their perch this weekend and they are definitely capable of it.”

Her sons Robert and Brendan McKeown, alongside first base Graham Marshall have all impressed in their first season.

Boyd Adidi and Kurt Reed have also been good pick-ups according to the coach.

“Kurt has the ability to be a very good player if he sticks with it, he really has the ability,” McKeown said of the 16-year-old.

Brothers United 8 play Western Suburbs Lynx in the other early men’s game, while Souths Sluggers play United 7 in the late game.
