Sin­ners 1 edge out Wick­ham and Storm smash Geckos

Pilbara News - - Sport - Michelle Fitzger­ald

What ended up be­ing a very close game be­tween Sin­ners 1 and Wick­ham cer­tainly did not start that way.

Sin­ners be­gan strongly, with Janet Ni­chol­son pitch­ing and Narelle Wal­ton play­ing a solid game at left­field. Tak­ing a catch and re­ceiv­ing a lot of the play, Wal­ton proved to be a valu­able out­fielder and a bat­ter worth watch­ing.

De­vel­op­ing an al­most unattain­able lead, Sin­ners were con­fi­dent on the field.

Wick­ham waited un­til the third dig and fi­nally brought in Chris­tine Retch­ford to pitch.

Retch­ford quickly struck out three play­ers. Fi­nal re­sults had Sin­ners 1 win­ning with a score of 22-21.

Storm con­tin­ued to demon­strate why they are the top of the lad­der with a 29-2 win over Geckos.

Nathalie Manado had a great out­field hit that brought home two run­ners for Geckos.

Kal­isa Storey took yet another fan­tas­tic catch at first base, shut­ting down Geckos. With a num­ber of new play­ers, Or­bits played a great game and gave Dampier a run for their money, but fell short 13-7.

Amy Gleave, in her first game, took a catch, made an out and ran bases ag­gres­sively, which re­ally helped Or­bits build on their score.

Dampier were still the stronger team on the night. Shae Hawkes, hit­ting an early home run over the top of right­field, and Ashleigh Fanetti also showed off some strong bat­ting dur­ing the game.

All teams are look­ing for in­ter­ested play­ers.
