Af­ter years of suc­cess, the Mt Al­bert Ram­blers men’s soft­ball side looks un­steady in the Auck­land Fast­pitch com­pe­ti­tion thanks to two big losses this sea­son.

In a week­end of mixed re­sults, reign­ing champs Ram­blers had a stun­ning 13-1 win over new club Hi­bis­cus Coast on Satur­day, be­fore los­ing 6-1 to North­cote.

The club has al­ready suf­fered an 11-5 loss to the Waitakere Bears this sea­son af­ter los­ing just one match in 20 cham­pi­onship games last year.

The team could re­deem them­selves against a strug­gling Glenora side at War­ren Freer Park on Satur­day.

Mean­while Eden Roskill scored a strong 82 win over the Roost­ers at May Rd, while Auck­land United had a bye.

Eden will play North­cote at Rosedale Park on Satur­day.

In the women’s com­pe­ti­tion Ram­blers notched up their sixth win in a row. Hi­bis­cus Coast fought back at the end be­fore Ram­blers won 5-3.

For­mer in­ter­na­tional Tuhi Cooper and star all­rounder Michelle Kingi each had two strong hits to in­spire the side.

Ram­blers will play a dou­ble-header against Marist and lo­cal ri­val Metro at How­ick on Sun­day, but should stay on track for the key clash against fel­low leaders Otahuhu.

Metro women are bat­tling for sur­vival af­ter fall­ing to Otahuhu 18-1.
