Workers rivals to square off today

WORKERS Condors will clash with Workers Wild Turkeys today in the match of the round in Far North Coast open women’s softball at Albert Park, Lismore.

Condors put in a big performance last Saturday, turning the tables on the more fancied Rous Rangers to scramble home by one run.

They will go into the game confident and should have the edge over club rivals Wild Turkeys.

Carlie Walker and Kasey Renwick have been in form in the field and with the bat, while Sam Green’s strength in the batter’s box has been a bonus for Condors.

Turkeys rely heavily on Tina Austen’s consistency from the mound. She has formed a reliable combination with Lauren McGowen but with McGowen missing today, it will put Turkeys under pressure.

Mary MacKenzie has been brilliant in the field and Erin Gardiner has been solid at first base.

Byron Bay Whitesox and Break-aways will clash in what should be an even encounter.

Shannon Knapp is Byron’s form player, with outfielder Aly Lycento and third base Tracey Johnson.

Breakaways have lots of depth. The battery of Kathy Johns to Sophie Knight is a strong combination and Knight’s rocket arm will keep the base runners in check.

In other games, Dodgers Devils will be favoured against Casino Ratbags and Rous Rangers should be too good for Goonellabah Lotto.

In Division 2, Woodburn M2Ms and Dodger Demons are yet to register a win so both teams will be keen to get early runs on the board. Pitchers Leonie Creighton and Katie Munro are the key players.

The Division 3 match of the round has Dodgers Angels up against Casino Cougars.

Angels are improving with every game. Anne Ross has found her niche on the mound and Robyn
McMahon’s ability at first base make them a threat this season.

Cougars will start favourites with Deride Coe, Di Allen and Julie Winnell players to watch.
