2021 Winners & Runners-up

Edinburgh Softball League 2021 round up of Winners and Runners-up.

 

Premier League

 

Close run for both top teams in the Premier this season only separated by one game, Dodgers going undefeated in the second half of the season yet couldn’t overturn the Souls great start and winning run. Both teams almost matched offence scoring with just over 200 runs batted in but Souls defence of 34 runs against compared to the leagues next best Dodgers of 101 showed how strong the Souls had been over the shortened 10 game season.  Sure both teams will now be desperate for the 2022 season head to head fixtures.   Middle of the table was decided on the final nights of the final week with Demons securing the 3rd place spot and new comers Bolts securing 4th .

 

Division 1

Haar Hitters pipped the preseason favourites Dohnuts with their head to head being the real difference this season.  For a team that almost folded, they hit recruitment hard and made 2021 a season to remember.  Promotion to the Premier awaits…. after Dohnuts finish 2nd.

A little bit of a merry go round with the other three teams in Div1 all have sat in the 3rd place spot or higher for a couple weeks but in the end Burns Batters secured the 3rd place spot.

Premier cup

Premier cup was a way to help the Premier teams get a few more games in this season and semi-finals saw the Souls v Storks end in a 25-10 win for the Souls and the Dodgers v Demons finished 25-11 for Dodgers. This set up a final I think everyone wanted to see, even getting a few spectators to show up on finals night.   Meeting for the 3rd time this season both teams wanting to secure victory and silverware which saw a very close game but Dodgers couldn’t stop the Souls edging away and sealing the 16-6 winning score line.
