Bronwyn Marshall’s steady pitching played a pivotal role in Glenthorn A’s 8-0 victory over their closest rivals Falcons and their sixth Cape Town Softball Association super league title in a row.

Marshall only gave up two hits with superb offensive backup by Astrid van Kesteren (2-2) and Courtney Stevens (2-3).

A two-run triple by Cindy Davids was another highlight in the team’s performance. Lindsay Vercueil’s 2-2 batting for Falcons included a double and triple.

Nicky Jones faced 25 A’s batters, giving up six hits and only two earned runs. A few defensive errors on the Falcons side accounted for the other runs.
