Cosmos 1 get the maiden win

Jacob who?

Cosmos1 pulled off a spectacular comeback against Spartans B on Saturday last to record a well earned maiden win. Down 13 runs after the first inning, the inexperienced Cosmos 1 side dug in against their more experienced opponents and clawed their way back into the game. Excellent pitching from MVP Stephen Murphy giving up just 6 runs over close to 5 innings and excellent batting all round saw the Cosmos 1 walk it off in the final inning. Minhea Dragan was again excellent at short stop in only his 3rd game and Seiko Hayase was again excellent at 2nd. Next up for Cosmos 1 is the daunting task of taking on the B league leaders Mariners B in Shanganagh on Saturday afternoon.

Tough day for Cosmos

Both Cosoms teams made the long journey north to Corkagh Park on Saturday. Cosmos 1 were first up versus an expereienced Hurricanes B side. Despite some impressive performances which belied their relative inexperience ultimately the Hurricanes greater experience saw them pull away in the last 2 innings to take the win. Best for Cosmos were Paul Gorn, Dagi Hinsching and rooke Rafal Ciardia.

Comsos travelled with high hopes following their win over Giants B last weekend. A slow start left the Cosmos too much to do against the Comets who won out 20-11 in a time limited game. Evergreen Arturo Ocana was the standout for Cosmos.

Both Cosmos teams are off the weekend of 21st May and return to action on 28th May. Cosmos 1 take on Spartans B in Cork while Cosmos travel to the IBC in Ashbourne for another tough fixture versus the Titans.

Mixed results for the Cosmos

Cosmos and Ashbourne Giants at Ballincollig Regional Park

Cosmos celebrate after their victory over Ashbourne

Cosomos 1 put in another solid performance against Belfast Bucs at Corkagh Park. Despite falling behin 10-3 after the first, an inexperienced Cosmos 1 side battled back bravely but ultimately ran out of time and ended up on the wrong side of a 24-15 result. Good performances all around belied the relative inexperience of a young side with Seiko Hayase taking the MVP award after another excellent performance with bat and in defence.
