Last weekend the 4 teams in the Women’s League played their 5th round at Southern Stars Baseball Club in Regents Park. The weather held up just enough to get two quality games of baseball in the books, advancing us one step closer to the playoffs.
Western District Bulldogs played Padres White in a very exciting and quality game of baseball resulting in Padres White taking the win 12-9. This game had some outstanding plays made by both teams, as well as some quality at bats and strong pitching. The sisters from Padres White, Amy and Kate West, both hit inside-the-park-homeruns to help out their team. The Bulldog’s pitching was very strong as usual but not sharp enough to silence Padres bats.
The second game was between Southern Stars and Padres Red, with Southern Stars remaining undefeated after their 11-10 win. This close game was action packed with Padres outhitting Stars but the Southern Stars women made crucial outs to keep them in the game. Special mention to Kate Oppatt from Padres who hit a triple and to Erin Hewitt at shortstop for Southern Stars who made a fantastic out that helped Stars take the win.
After 5 rounds of play we have an undefeated Southern Stars at the top of the ladder, with Padres Red coming in second, followed by Padres White and tailing closely are the Western Bulldogs.
All teams will be travelling to Darra on Saturday for the final round of the regular season. Western Bulldogs will host Southern Stars at 2pm, followed by another Padres showdown at 4pm as the Red and White team go head-to-head.
See you out there for another fantasti weekend of baseball!
