Pilbara News - - Sport - Michelle Fitzger­ald

Sin­ners 2 made mas­sive im­prove­ments on their re­sults from the first round against Or­bits, but fell short with a fi­nal score of 20-9 in the lat­est West Pil­bara Soft­ball round last week­end.

De­spite miss­ing out on the win, they had some great hits from play­ers such as Nisha Kee­tels, whose two-base hit out past right field brought two play­ers home.

Tammy Did­den con­tin­ued to im­prove her pitch­ing, at times con­fus­ing the Or­bits’ bat­ters with her slow loop­ing pitches that dropped in right over the plate.

Sofie Nielsen had a great first game at catcher for Or­bits, with Melinda Clarke pitch­ing a con­sis­tent fast ball that kept Sofie on her toes.

Wick­ham recorded a 16-6 vic­tory over the Geckos in what was a close game for the first two digs.

The play of the game must go to Wick­ham’s Chrisene Retch­ford.

The fi­nal game was a fight for the top of the lad­der with Sin­ners 1 and Storm going down to the wire.

Storm dug deep and played an ag­gres­sive in­nings to take out the game 11 to nine.
