Onwards and upwards.
That's the mentality of Cavaliers' youngster Bailey Ferguson as his side was left reeling on Wednesday night after Orange City was crowned 2019-2020 BOIDC champions after the season was cut short due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
Sunday's three-run loss was already crushing enough and now it'll be remembered as the day the Warriors snatched the trophy away from the minor premiers, but the Cavaliers don't plan on hanging their heads for too long and know they still produced a hell of a 2019-2020 campaign.
"The mood's definitely down at the moment because of how well we played throughout the season," Fergusons said.
"Our celebrations next weekend should bring our mood back up because we're all a good bunch of mates and we've got to be proud of the cracking season we had."

While Ferguson and his teammates are accepting of the decision to give the title to City, he thought there were ways to play out the season safely, given the non-contact nature of his sport.
"You hardly come into contact with each other," he said.
"I thought that was one of the sports they could have continued but oh well.
"Full credit to City. They beat us on the day."
