Gordon key on the mound

By TRISH CLAYDON

DODGERS Devils will meet Byron Bay today in the Northern Division of Far North Coast women's softball at Albert Park, Lismore.

Dodgers had a narrow victory over the unbeaten Rous Rangers last week in a thrilling game.

They will rely on Loris Gordon to control the game from the mound. Gordon is in great form and pitched a number of strike-outs last Saturday.

Byron Bay are a big-hitting team and are quite capable of holding their own against Dodgers.

They will be well served by pitcher Shannon Knapp and shortstop Di West.

In the Southern Division, undefeated Rous Rogues face Breakaways.

Rous are on a roll, led by pitcher Kerry Wilson and shortstop Sue Crowther.

Breakaways have just picked up Wendy Gerrard and Kathy Johns, who will add strength to the team.

Players in all grades of juniors, youth and mixed are still needed.

n FNC Softball Association is running an open men's competition on Friday nights after the mixed comp. Games will go from 8.15pm to 9.45pm. All players are welcome. Inquiries to Ross Dowse on 0409-663654.

FNC will host a game between the NSW Under-16 girls team and FNC Under-19 girls at Albert Park on November 19 starting at 11.45am.
