Jonathan Phillips hitting a home run in the 1st inning and J.P Norman answered that in the 2nd.
The game was a close encounter,with the pitchers and defenses not giving anything up anyhthing.The game went into extra innings, both teams struggling with the bat against dominant pitching and went into the 10th, 11th ,12th, 13th 14th, 15th , 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th , 20th and finally into the 21st inning.

Bellville up to bat, batter gets a free base, the next batter bunts him to 2nd and the Jonathan Phillips comes up and hits an rbi single to score the go-ahead run. Jonathan then stole to second and Polev d Merwe hits an rbi single  3-1 and Bothasig up to bat.Bothasig were closed down  in there last batting turn and after 21 innings of baseball the umpiring could finally call ball game.
This is a record in SA baseball and to all the players that played and spectators that watched you are all part of history.National coaches  Neil Adonis(Bothasig) and Allan Phillips(Bellville) are congratualted on a spectacular and historical game.
