Able to field a full squad of nine for the first time in a number of weeks, Peninsula Bandits showed hot form to beat Pittwater Pythons 11-4 in the Division 1 Reserve major semi-final at Abbott Road on Saturday.

The Pythons were ahead 2-1 after the first dig on the back of a double bagger from Josie to bring home Maddie, with Josie scoring a sliding second run ahead of the throw.

Scarlett scored the run for the Bandits off a hit to centre by Milli.

The second innings saw the Bandits’ pitcher Cam throw down two K2s (she would record four for the game) and then a squeeze on Ayla between third and home had the Pythons not adding to their total.


The Bandits second at bat saw Scarlett hitting to left field for a double RBI (Audrey and Roxy running home).

Abi stole home for a third to put the Bandits ahead 4-2.

Pythons started strong in the third with a single home run to Maddie. Josie soon added a second.

Coming out to bat the Bandits put their foot down with four runs to Maree, Roxy, Scarlett and Abi. A hit to centre by Milli brought home two of them.

The fourth innings saw the Pythons three up, three down.

Abi’s pitching provided two K2s and a throw from shortie, Milli, to Roxy at first leading to a third out.

Runs to Milli, Alana and Audrey, the later a double RBI from Abi closed out the game for the Bandits.

The Bandits will now enjoy a week off ahead of the grand final while the Pythons will face the Warriors who beat the Predators in the minor semi-final.
