Bulldogs Come Back Late, Nip Tigers
Fans of the Canterbury Bulldogs who packed the stands for the home opener were rewarded with a Canterbury win over the visiting Balmain Tigers, 6-5. Bubba Hawley started for the home team against Steve Binge. Steve Binge earned the coveted player of the game honors. Canterbury reliever David Heighway picked up the win, upping his record to 1-0. Kenji Egawa absorbed the loss.

Hal Burbage was the walk-off hero for Canterbury. With the game tied in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Bulldogs pinch hitter hit a dramatic run-scoring single to send the teams home.

"This place was electric at the end," Burbage said.
