Macarthur claim Under-19 Men's State Championship

Macarthur’s under-19 men have had the perfect finish to the 2018 State Championships with a 7-0 win over two-time defending champions Penrith to claim the title.

Macarthur finished second after the preliminary rounds behind Penrith and faced Sutherland in the semi-final.

Following a relatively slow start to the competition, including a loss to Penrith and close-fought wins over Newcastle and Orange, Macarthur we primed for the playoffs.

Facing Sutherland, Macarthur claimed a 6-0 win in the semi-final to set up a grudge match with Penrith.

However, the challengers were more than ready, running away with a 7-0 win in five innings, featuring home runs to Harrison Pudner and Haiden-Jesse Reveco.

Harrison Pudner also starred on the mound for Macarthur throwing a no hitter for the champions in the final.

He said it was a great feeling to help his side to the title.

“It was a couple of years in the making, I haven’t won since 15s so I love that. It was a strong competition all round, every team had their batters and pitchers and fielders. It made us really fight for what we wanted and helped us win that final.”
