Toc’s big match

Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

Tocumwal Public School girls soft­ball team played Lav­ing­ton in Tocumwal re­cently, with the lo­cal team al­most caus­ing an up­set over its more ex­pe­ri­enced ri­vals.

Only a ner­vous first in­nings saw Tocumwal de­feated 15-12 with the home team fin­ish­ing strongly. Un­for­tu­nately time ran out or the re­sult may have been dif­fer­ent.

Coach Beth Hatty was very proud of her young side.

‘‘We only had three Year 6 girls in our side with the ma­jor­ity from years 4 and 5. This bodes well for the fu­ture with those girls gain­ing valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence.

‘‘‘There was fan­tas­tic sports­man­ship and sup­port shown by both sides in a very en­joy­able game to be in­volved in,” she said.
