Queensland Heat finish Gilley's Shield in third spot

Queensland Heat have improved on their performance last year to finish third in the 2010/11 Gilley's Shield.

They headed into the final round in second position, but slipped to third after losing vital round games against the ACT Diamonds and the VIC Titans.
Following are the Round 4 (pre-finals) results;
Thursday 17th Feb
ACT Diamonds 3 def QLD Heat 0
VIC Titans 3 def QLD Heat 0 
Friday 18th Feb
QLD Heat 7 def NSW Firestars 2

On Friday night, they played the ACT Diamonds in a sudden death semi-final.  With great team hitting and defense, Queensland won 3 runs to 2, moving them into Saturday's second elimination semi final against NSW Firestars.
Unfortunately, Queensland Heat lost to the NSW Firestars 4-0. 
In the grand final, the WA Flames won back to back titles when they beat the NSW Firestars 1-0.
Congratualtions to the Queensland Heat for their Gilley's Shield campaign.
