Pilbara News - - Sport - Louise Alling­ham and Na­dia Smythe

The West Pil­bara Soft­ball As­so­ci­a­tion saw two land­slide wins dur­ing game four of the sea­son last week.

Geckos de­feated Sin­ners (2) by a mas­sive 30 runs to 1.

Geckos’ ju­nior Chloe Stopps bat­ted 1000 while Teisha Rob con­nected well to send the ball to cen­tre field for a three-bag hit.

Rhi­an­non Win­gate from Sin­ners (2) played an­other great game at short­stop while Jo­lene Bos­man smashed a three-bag hit to get her on base for the first time this sea­son.

Sin­ners (1) de­feated the Dampier Fal­cons 29 runs to 12. The Fal­cons had it in the be­gin­ning but strong bat­ting saw the Sin­ners (1) come back in the sec­ond half.

Cassie Inkster starred in the bat­ter’s box for the Sin­ners (1) with a mas­sive hit get­ting her to third base and two over the plate. Becky Mac­neall dis­played some ag­gres­sive base run­ning and slid­ing.

Fal­con’s ju­niors played well but the play of the match went to their stal­wart, Lynette Up­ton, who smashed a grand slam.

It was a closer game be­tween Or­bits and Storm but it was Storm who came out on top in the end win­ning by just two runs.

Storm started strong with the bat, bring­ing in nine runs in the first in­nings. Or­bits tried to match them and kept their in­ten­sity all game but couldn’t close the gap ini­tially set by Storm.

Sarah Boagey and Kal­isa Storey from Storm both had nice out­field hits to bring in some runs while Or­bits new­comer Ali­son Wig­more and re­turn­ing player Bron­wyn Thomas bat­ted well from Or­bits.
