Souths claim double header in great start to the season

DESPITE playing two games consecutively, Souths women's softball team showed they were indomitable.

Souths player Jeanene Groves said the first game's score against Psyclones had been 12-3.

"We did really well," she said.

"Georgia Armitage in the Pysclones game hit the ball over the fence for an automatic home run.

"It was straight over centrefield which is the longest part in the ball park. It doesn't happen often at all."

For that Groves named Armitage player of the match.

"And then pretty much after that, the team kept batting and batting for the whole two games," Groves said.

Groves said playing two games in a row had been tiring, but they were happy with their performance.

"It takes a pretty good toll on the fielders and particularly the pitchers," she said.

"It's just the way it works out in a three-team competition. It was just our turn for the double header."

Groves said they won the following game against Telfords 26-nil.

"It was a positive start (to the season)," she said.

"There's room for improvement, but by the business end of the season I reckon we'll be up there."
