Pilbara News - - Sport - Michelle Fitzger­ald

Safe hit­ting and ex­cel­lent pitch­ing saw the Or­bits ladies take home the win over Sin­ners 1 in the soft­ball com­pe­ti­tion last week­end.

Once again, Melinda Clarke proved she was the team pitcher.

With four strike­outs in the game, Clarke’s fast pitch­ing chal­lenged the Sin­ners 1 team and held those who could hit her to sin­gle base hits.

Tia Kemp’s two safe out­field hits brought run­ners home for Or­bits.

De­spite Narelle Wal­ton com­ing home three times in the game for Sin­ners 1, the fi­nal score was 11-8 Or­bits’ way.

Storm over­came some early jit­ters to win 11-7 against Wick­ham.

Wick­ham gained an early 7-0 lead with Chris­tene Retch­ford pitch­ing and pulling off an im­pres­sive catch for Wick­ham in the first dig. Storm gath­ered de­ter­mi­na­tion and had an awe­some third in­nings, bring­ing 11 home with strong base run­ning.

Court­ney Busby played a great short­stop for Storm and was in­volved in a lot of the crit­i­cal play that al­lowed Storm to take the win 11-7 on count­back.

Sin­ners 2 left their run too late against Dampier, who took out the win 11-9.
