Sin­ners 1 and Geckos draw

Pilbara News - - Sport - Michelle Fitzger­ald

A stand-out game from Geckos pitcher Chloe Bow­den was not enough to force a re­sult against Sin­ners 1, who came home strong to draw the game.

Bow­den struck a num­ber of bat­ters out to help the Geckos de­velop a strong lead.

With Ash­ley Tiller out in­jured, Janet Ni­chol­son was left to pitch for Sin­ners 1.

Ni­cole Derr took ad­van­tage of Ni­chol­son’s slower pitch to show off her hard-hit­ting game with two home runs dur­ing the game.

De­ter­mined not to let Geckos beat them, Ni­chol­son caught a spec­tac­u­lar line drive, Leanne Khan took a tricky catch at third base and Re­becca Mac­neall sent a ball into the out­field that man­aged to bring a few run­ners home for Sin­ners 1.

Wick­ham had a bet­ter time against Dampier this week, win­ning 12-2. Wick­ham Sec­ond bat Tracey Blan­ket man­aged the big­gest home run of the sea­son, hit­ting the fence be­yond left field, al­low­ing for an easy home run and im­pres­sive start for Wick­ham.

Dampier’s Shaw Hawkes saw a lot of ac­tion at short stop as Wick­ham’s strong bat­ting made it a onesided game. A sec­ond home run for Wick­ham from Am­ber Jaf­fray bought her­self and two team­mates home in the third dig.

Play­ing the de­vel­op­ing Sin­ners 2 team, Storm took the op­por­tu­nity to al­low younger play­ers, Ab­by­gail Bushby, Kate­lyn Arnold and Court­ney Bushby a chance to show their pitch­ing skills.

Sarah Boagey showed off her bat­ting skills with a home run out past cen­tre field, al­low­ing Storm to add to their to­tal.

The Sin­ners 2 ladies pulled off an early dou­ble play, with Zhane Kee­tels tag­ging out a player at third base be­fore mov­ing back to play catcher later in the game.

Neisha Kee­tels pitched well for Sin­ners 2, Sarah Robin­son took two great catches at left field and Peta Gilla al­most made it home with her great cen­tre field hit.

The fi­nal score was 16-6 in favour of the Storm.
