In the B2 League, it was tight at the top with Mariners Baseball Vikings (10-3) one game ahead of Red Rox Baseball (8-3) thanks to victories at home to Dublin Spartans B (12-5); at Ashbourne Stags (18-3) and two walkover wins at Cork Cosmos 1. These wins however, were sandwiched between losses to Belfast NorthStars (11-15 on 3 July) and 9-12 at Ashbourne Giants B (on 31 July). Red Rox remained their nearest challenger for the B2 pennant with a walkover win versus Cork Cosmos and a huge 34-11 defeat of Belfast Buccaneers. Ashbourne Stags (7-6) and Dublin Hurricanes B (6-5) remained in the playoff picture as the Stags followed losses to Ashbourne Titans (13-14) and Mariners Vikings (3-18) with walkover victories against Dublin Spartans B and Cork Cosmos.

Belfast Buccaneers improved to 5-7 with a 10-8 victory over Mariners B followed by losses to Hurricanes B and Red Rox and then a shock 21-12 over Comets.

Weeks 19-22 (August 2022)

In a very close B1 League Pennant race, Belfast NorthStars extended their winning streak to nine games before the last weekend in August with a 15-0 victory over northern rivals Belfast Buccaneers. The NorthStars stood at 13-1, while in second place the 11-2 Mariners B had a 13-12 win at Red Rox and benefitted from a walkover versus Cork Cosmos.

Half a game behind the Titans on 9-4 and with a three-game winning streak were Comets who had a good month, defeating Dublin Hurricanes B 18-5, Vikings 13-11 and Red Rox 11-9. Ashbourne Giants B, already out of the running picked up a walkover at Cork Cosmos. [References: Results and Standings 1]

The B2 League race was a three-team affair with Mariners Vikings leading the way on 11-5, Red Rox in second on 9-5 and Ashbourne Stags on 9-6 in third, although Belfast Buccaneers were putting together a push for the playoffs on 8-8 after a three-game winning streak. Dublin Hurricanes B had perhaps too much left to do on 6-8 and Dublin Spartans B were already eliminated from playoff contention on 2-12. Buccaneers had won twice over Dublin Spartans B (18-4 and 13-12 in a double-header in Belfast) after losing to Belfast NorthStars and then had a walkover versus Cork Cosmos 1 to break even on the year. Ashbourne Stags likewise put up a three-game winning streak also with a walkover versus Cork Cosmos 1. Leading the way in the B2 League, however, were Red Rox who suffered close losses to B1 League challengers Mariners B and Comets before a walkover against Cosmos 1; and the B2 Leaders themselves the Vikings who lost to Comets and Titans of the B1 League. [References: Results and Standings 1]

Weeks 23-26 (September 2022)

In the B1 League Belfast Northstars finished the season with a 17-5 victory over Ashbourne Titans before losing their final game 14-6 to Mariners B who had also defeated Comets 22-0 and Ashbourne Giants B 28-8 to reach the playoffs on 16-2 record alongside NorthStars with Mariners B taking the B1 League Pennant.

B2 League Pennant winners were Red Rox who finished 13-5 with strong wins over Dublin Hurricanes B (25-8) and Ashbourne Stags (22-5) both on the road.

Semi-Finals (2-8 October 2022)

B2 League Pennant winners Red Rox (13-5) pulled off a minor miracle in defeating B1 League runners-up (16-2) Belfast NorthStars 2-1 in the Best of three Semi-Finals. After winning the first game 12-10 Red Rox then lost the second game in Belfast 12-2 before taking the third game the following weekend 17-14 in Portmarnock.

In the second semi-final, the two Mariners teams, Mariners B (16-2, B1 League Pennant winners) had to fight all the way to beat Mariners Vikings (12-6, B2 League runners-up) in three games, winning the first game 16-4, before dropping game 2 17-18 and then the following weekend defeating the Vikings 14-3.

About Comets Baseball

Comets Baseball moved to Peace Link Park in Clones, Co. Monaghan shortly before the 2016 season started, thus requiring the team name to be changed from Cavan Comets to simply Comets Baseball. In their first season in Monaghan they went 4-18, finishing fourth of four teams in the B League North Division, thereafter steadily improving, going 5-13 in 2017, finishing 6th out of 7 in the B League North. A slight drop in form in 2018 ( 3-15, sixth of 7 teams), was followed by a 5-14 season in 2019 (finishing fourth of four in the B-2 League) and then a 4-5 season in the 2020 B League North Division, finishing 3rd of four teams. 2022 was a huge inprovement for the team, going 8-3 in the B League Upper, finishing second of five teams, and reaching the B Playoff Final, before losing 7-9 to Mariners Baseball B team.
