Kenfac Phillies continued their winning streak against Glenthorn A’s at Turfhall softball stadium on Saturday.

Their star American pitcher, Chelsea Cohen, mesmerised A’s by facing only 13 batters – one more than the minimum – to secure a 7-0 victory against the defending league champions.

Cohen followed up her brilliant pitching stint with an unblemished batting display of 3-3.

Tantasport were kept at bay by newcomers Lavender Hill 0-0 while Westridge Yankees annihilated the other newcomers, VOB, 20-0 at City Park.

Men’s major leagueHamiltons Green ended the first round on a high when they easily disposed of Moses Molaba’s Khayelitsha Eagles in a Cape Town Softball men’s major league on Sunday

The Greens recorded 10 hits off the Eagles, with Luke Jacobs leading the pack at 3-3. Jacobs was closely followed by Matthew Diedericks batting at 2-2.

The new boys in the major league failed to master Lloyd Stevens, who faced 16 batters, giving up four scattered hits.

In an earlier game the Greens beat Westridge Yankees 10-1 to remain unbeaten in the league.

In the other late game Pirates secured their first win with a 4-3 victory against Yankees.

The vandalism at Turfhall is causing havoc in the men’s game schedule.

Games are played on a Sunday instead of midweek due to the theft of all the floodlight components at the stadium.

Hamiltons Black and St Martins already withdrew their teams as many players are unable to fulfil their game duties on Sundays.
