Can’t split top teams

IN Far North Coast Open women’s softball this weekend, nothing separates the competing teams.

And in this weekend’s match of the round (on 2B at 2pm) the mighty Rous Rangers take on the flying Workers Condors, which will start as favourites.

Rangers, however, will be out to make amends after going down by one run in their last clash.

Rangers pitcher Loris Gordon has been doing an extremely fantastic job on the mound but today there could be a change in tactics, with Sue Clark set to start on the mound with Gordon to finish off at the end.

This likely scenario will create plenty of work in the field, but putting Gordon into the field will strengthen their defence.

The rumour mill has it that Chris Blizzard will make a welcome return to the diamond for Rangers today, while ‘Blizz’ has been out for a number of seasons (about six) her expertise could make all the difference here.

Rangers are a strong batting side, capable of slamming the ball all over the park.

But Condors coach Al Renwick will have done his homework and will place his field accordingly to cater for the big hitters of Sam Dowse and Denise Simes.

Carlie Walker will lead Condors from the mound, and she will have plenty of support from Erin Gardiner at first, Amy Wong has been exceptional in the field and with the bat, while Sam Green’s switch from Casino has really paid off for Condors, as she is a danger any position on the field.

This game should go down to the wire, and whichever team can get the runs on the board without the errors will get the points today.
