STAGS GO DOWN FIGHTING WITH PIRATES
The Stags went down 18-16 to the South London Pirates in a tense home opener on Sunday 5th MAy.
The day started with the Mayoress of Brentwood being introduced to the 2 teams and them throwing the ceremonial 1st pitch to Stags catcher Rob Donat.
When the game got underway the Pirates wasted no time getting on the board scoring 4 runs in the 1st innings. The game was nip and tuck for the duration with the Stags at one stage taking an 11-10 lead. However the Pirates forged ahead towards the end and the Stags needing 5 to tie in the last innings could only plate 3 before the final out.
