Macarthur U16 Boy’s State Champions

The Macarthur U16 Boy’s have defended their State Championship Title by winning the 2019 U16 Boy’s State Championship at Blacktown International Sportspark.

Macarthur was undefeated heading into the final. Penrith City and Orange had to fight it out to see who would move into the final with Orange coming out victors 20 runs to 10.

The final was one of the best seen in years with the game scoreless after 3 innings. The 4th innings saw Orange take the lead 2-0 before Macarthur clawed their way back to level then go ahead thanks to a Grand Slam Homerun to Riley Sutcliffe to go to a 6-2 lead.

Scores stayed the same until the top of 7th went Orange mounted a fight back scoring 3 runs but fell short with the game finishing at 6-5 to Macarthur.

Congratulations to both teams on a great game.
