Double-header for the Condors
WORKERS Condors will play a double-header in Far North Coast open women’s softball at Albert Park, Lismore, today.
In the first game at 4pm, Condors will take on Rous Rangers, who have been unstoppable, but today the outcome could be different.
Loris Gordon and back-up pitcher Sue Clark are absent from Rangers’ line-up, which could leave them in disarray.
The absence of Gordon and Clark leaves a huge hole but Chris Blizzard, Denise Simes and Cheryl Nilon have the experience to handle whatever is thrown at them.
Condors’ Carlie Walker will resume her spot on the mound after fulfilling CHS representative commitments last week.
Vanessa Wong and Erin Gardner are in great form with the bat.
If Condors can capitalise on the absence of Gordon without committing too many errors they should get the points.
In the other game, at 6pm, Condors take on Dodgers Devils.
The teams are neck and neck on the ladder and with only one week left before the semi-finals, the outcome could decide second and third spots.
Devils will come out fresh and that could give them the edge.
Sonya Pope and Sue Wraight have a great battery, while Selina Atkinson and Jo Rucker are dangers with the bat.
If Condors get a win in the first game, it will give them confidence going into the second.
Kasey Renwick and Shannon Pool will lead the Condors’ pack.
In the lower grades match of the round, Byron Bay Redsox and Goonellabah Tigers will battle it out.
They share the competition lead and with one week left the game could determine the minor premiership.
Annelise Melene, Freya Lindquist and Simmone Reamey are the key players for Redsox, while Jodie Foster, Grace Morton and Kerri Foster will put in big efforts for Tigers.
Workers Wild Turkeys and Goonellabah Lotto should play a close game.
Tina Austen’s consistency from the mound will prevent too many runs. Goonellabah will rely on Kelly Ingram and Renee Cowan.
