Queensland Patriots make John Reid Grand Final

The Queensland Patriots came agonisingly close to being crowned 2011 National Champions after making the John Reid grand final against ACT.
On home soil, the Queensland Patriots displayed their skills when they took on the powerhouse ACT in the final.  It was an exciting game with great defensive plays and good hitting by both teams, but unfortunately the Patriots couldn't score a run, and they lost 3-0.
It was a long road to the final for the Patriots after they came in fourth position after the round games.  In their first sudden death semi-final verse NSW, Queensland won 6-4.  Then, in the second elimination semi final verse last year's national champions, WA, the Patriots won the game in style, with an Andrew Blackshaw walk-off home run in the bottom of the 7th innings to put Queensland in the grand final.
Following is their round and final results;
