Pilbara News - - Sport - Michelle Fitzger­ald

Af­ter a long week­end play­ing and cel­e­brat­ing the Dampier Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion 50th an­niver­sary, dur­ing which Kar­ratha eas­ily took the shield, softball play­ers re­turned to their lo­cal clubs and bat­tled it out at Dampier last Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Wick­ham claimed a con­vinc­ing win over the Or­bits on the back of a good pitch­ing dis­play, beat­ing the Or­bits’ bats all match.

Both teams fielded well but Wick­ham’s bat­ting got them over the line with a fi­nal score of 12-2.

Wick­ham’s Crys­tal Lady­man and Or­bits’ Melinda Clarke both took catches for the high­light reel.

Strong bat­ting and field­ing al­lowed Sin­ners 1 to shut out the Fal­cons early in the game, but the home side were not go­ing down without a fight.

In true Dampier style, the home team came back swing­ing late in the game to score five runs in one in­nings, but it was not enough to se­cure a win, with Sin­ners 1 de­feat­ing the Fal­cons team 11-7.

In the fi­nal match, Geckos won their first game of the sea­son over Sin­ners 2, 15-11.

Deb Lav­ery-Stevens showed great con­trol of sec­ond base for Geckos.
