Motivation must have been running high for Dodgers on Saturday.
They put in a huge performance to win back the Merv Clyma Shield from Ellis Park.
The 22-0 win was the biggest margin of the Dunedin club softball season.
Dodgers not only piled on the runs, they made scoring very tough for Ellis Park. Indeed, it was former Ellis Park pitcher Jacob Wedlock who did much of the damage for Dodgers, allowing just one hit from the 14 batters he faced, while racking up 11 strikeouts.
The shield, which is contested between the two teams, had not been at stake since 2015, until Ellis Park re-entered the premier men’s grade this year.
However, Ellis Park held the shield, an invitational team from the club having won the last time it was contested.
The other game of the day was far more intense.
Trailing 12-6 and with two out in the last inning, Old Boys rallied to score six runs against Cardinals.
That forced a tie-breaker, in which Cardinals clinched a dramatic 13-12 win.
