Softball teams mixing it up again
THERE will be action aplenty in the Open mixed competition of the Far North Coast softball tonight (8pm) when Casino Misfits take on cross-town rivals Casino Coyotes.
This game promises to be evenly matched and played in good spirit.
Sharon Hinds and cricketer David Lovett will lead the way for Misfits, while Deride and Rohon Coe will put in a big game for Coyotes.
In the other games, Goonellabah Meteors and Byron Oddsocks will be a close one and Goonellabah CC’s might just get home over Workers Nightingales.
In the under-18 competition, we will see Workers Mighty Ducks take on Dodger Bandits, the form team in the 18s competition which has yet to be beaten.
Carlie Walker stars on the mound for the Ducks and with the experience of Sam Green, Mitchell Dowse and Tom Wade in their line-up they will be hard a hard team to crack.
Bandits will be looking to turn the tables here tonight. They are a very capable side and expect big games from Mitchell Watt, Edward Kelly and Sam Osborne, while Jennifer Ross and Perri McInnes will be trying hard in the field.
In the under-15s tonight, Casino Bluejays have emerged as early favorites although Dodger Lakers are not far behind.
Bluejays take on Goonellabah Wildcats at 5pm. Brodie Groth, Hayley Donadel and Bee Bower are key players for the Casino side while Grace Morton, Michael Fredricks and Jamila Pursche are key players for Goonellabah.
In the 13s, Dodger Allstars and Byron Supersox will be a hard-fought match.
Allstars’ Nick Winkler-Moloney poses a threat to the opposition both in the field and with the bat. Wes Lampard and Kacee Clark are solid in the field.
Supersox are a well drilled side with Jordan Evans emerging as a developing pitcher and with Azlan Currie behind the plate this is proving a great combination. This will be a close one.
There will be games for the juniors to be played next Tuesday, December 1 from 5pm – for under-13s, under-15s and under-18s.
