Mitchell’s Plain’s travellers Westridge Yankees were in a destructive mood at Turfhall, slaying Kenfac Phillies 11-0 in their Cape Town Softball Association match on Sunday.

The battery combination of pitcher Megan Cable and catcher Zeona Dearham was firing on all cylinders as the pair shared in 11 strike outs.

It was a good weekend for Yankees who recorded a 7-2 win against St Martin’s on Saturday.

Yankees pitcher Cable faced just 16 batters in her five innings pitched. While she conceded one base-on-ball and earned 11 scalps, Cable surrendered no hits or any runs.

Meanwhile, on the mound for Kenfac Phillies, Easter van der Heever, in her five innings pitched, faced 29 batters, claiming six fans and allowed four hits to which Dearham (1-2), Nuraan Williams, Cable (two bagger) and Charmelle Whiteboy (all 1-3) featured for Yankees.

Left outfielder Jenna Moses for Phillies took a brilliant catch in the top of the fourth frame to dismiss Yankees’ lead-off batter Dearham.

However, Phillies made seven errors in the game between third base fielder Janie Solomons and short stop fielder Faith Beukes.

Nonetheless, Kenfac Phillies had some joy to cheer about when they snatched an 18-4 victory over VOB, who are languishing at the bottom of the table.

With six points richer Westridge Yankees occupy third spot with 16 points from seven assignments.

The unbeaten and hard to beat defending champions Glenthorn-Athlone top the standings with 21 points from seven matches following victories against Normies (13-0) and Tantasport (11-0).

Archrivals Falcons, placed second with 19 points from seven outings, also picked up six points from their double header following victories against Normies (9-2) and Tanta­sport (13-2).
