Kar­ratha on top af­ter round-robin

Pilbara News - - Sport - Ben Leahy

Kar­ratha has pipped Hed­land 3-2 in the fi­nal of the North West Softball Cham­pi­onships to be crowned the re­gion’s best.

Held last Satur­day and Sun­day at South Hed­land’s Marie Mar­land Re­serve, the event in­cluded teams from New­man, Tom Price, Dampier and a sec­ond Hed­land side called the Pi­rates.

With each side play­ing ev­ery other team twice in 10 roundrobin matches, it was home side Hed­land and Kar­ratha who emerged as the pow­er­house teams to beat.

In the hard-fought game, Kar­ratha shot out to a 2 runs to nil lead, be­fore Hed­land fought hard over the next few in­nings to level the scores at 2-2.

But they could not con­tain their op­po­nents at the plate in the clos­ing in­nings as Kar­ratha scored one more run to take home the ti­tle.
