Two 3 base hits by Fayruz Beyers, bringing in four runs for Westridge Yankees, were the highlights of the Yankees 7-4 win over Tantasport in the Super League of the Cape Town Softball Association.

Tantasport outhit Yankees eight to three, but were unfortunate with some poor defensive plays in the outfield. Two dropped catches by the Tantasport defense saw Yankees take the upper hand.

Nawaal Nacerodien, Meghan Fillmore and Amee-Leigh Ford all batted 2-3 for Tantasport.

Megan Cable, the Yankees’ pitcher, gave up eight hits whilst Fillmore and Rozanne Albertyn shared the pitching duties for Tantasport.

The late game saw Falcons hold on to a valuable one run win over Kenfac Phillies, running out 7-6 winners. Young Amy Minnies performed admirably for Falcons on the pitching rubber and was rewarded when she crossed the plate for the winning run in the fifth innings of a pulsating contest.

Lavender Hill easily beat newcomers Heideveld Yankees 10-1.
