Softball semis race is on

SEVEN teams are battling for two available spots in the semi-finals of Far North Coast open mixed softball.

Competition continues tonight at Albert Park, Lismore, from 8pm.

Goonellabah CCs and Workers Buzzards are assured of semi-final positions but little separates the others.

Casino Misfits and Byron Bay Dirtysox go head to head tonight.

Dirtysox will be out to make amends after a one-run loss to Goonellabah Meteors last week.

Mel and Terri Currie are the driving force behind Dirtysox.

Misfits are the team most likely to cause an upset.

Mark Virtue, Scott Petty and Sharon Hinds are players to watch out for.

In other games, Coolshots will take on Goonellabah Meteors; Casino Coyotes and Dodgers Hotshots are likely to play a tight one; while Workers Buzzards should have an easier game against the young Nightingales.

In the Under-18s at 6.30pm, Workers Wild Turkeys are heading for the minor premiership, with teams struggling to get close to them.

Casino Cubs will try to match it with Wild Turkeys tonight. Expect big games from Brodie Groth and Bee Bowyer.

Dodgers Colts might have the edge on Goonellabah Titans.

In the Under-15s at 5pm, Dodgers Braves’ Hayden Watt is rock solid on the mound, which might cause headaches for Goonellabah Wildcats.

In the Under-13s at 6.30pm, Dodgers Allstars and Dodger Mustangs will be a close one.

While the pitchers in this division struggle to go the distance, Nick Moloney-Winkler gives Mustangs the edge.

T-ball and Modball start at 5pm.
