Souths boast winning weekend

SOUTHS won two from two on Saturday night in the A-grade softball competition, the best was a come from behind victory.

Psyclones took to Souths pitcher Eliza Armitage in the first innings, racking up nine runs. But it was the Souths batters and tight fielding that steadied the ship.

Clawing their way back into the match, Souths were helped along by Christine Sherry, who managed to hit home six runs with bases near loaded in the middle of the match.

The game went to the death, and with the Psyclones scoring dried up, it was Souths prevailing 11-9, and not panicking after being blown away early.

In the earlier match, Telfords went down by two in close match, 9-7 up.

The game was a close tussle the whole way, with Rebecca Rawson starting the game pitching for Souths and Kristine Holzberger finishing out the game.

Christine Heisner had given Telfords a healthy lead with a lusty hit that put her side three runs up, but strong hitting at the end from Souths helped them get over the line.

In the A-grade men’s game, Psyclones defeated Souths 1-nil, with young pitcher Jakobie Massey proving a handful for the Souths batters.

In the B-grade women, Souths had an easy 17-7 win over Psyclones, and the under-15’s association girls’ team defeated the Crocs, 17-7.
