Falcons had to maintain their composure to overcome a gutsy Tantasport in a Cape Town Softball Association Super League encounter at the Turfhall Softball Stadium in Athlone on Saturday 23 February.

Falcons amassed six runs in the second inning of their encounter with struggling Tantasport. Falcons kept their number-one pitcher, Amy Minnies, under wraps for the knockout competition, which resumes on Sunday 3 March. Stalwart Bettina Phillips performed the pitching duties for the duration of the game. Phillips faced 32 batters, giving up a mere four hits and three free bases and striking out three batters in the process.

Roxanne Albertyn, Tanta’s pitcher, was not going to be undone as she gave up only five hits. Some sloppy Tanta defence in the second inning saw Falcons score freely. Albertyn kept her nerve and her defence started performing admirably from then on.

Westridge Yankees easily defeated Kenfac Phillies (7-0) in the other Super League game, with Jackie Adonis (3/4) shining with the bat. Megan Cable again performed with poise on the pitching rubber, giving up only three hits against a normally formidable Phillies batting lineup.

Sunday saw some knockout action. This time Phillies’ batters came to the party when they beat Falcons 8-4. Phillies will now face Westridge Yankees in the final. Yankees beat Glenthorn A’s 16-7 after trailing 7-0 in the fifth inning. In one of the most exciting comebacks in recent history, Yankees drew level, sending the game into a tie-breaker. They added a further nine runs to their tally.

In the men’s Major League knockout competition, Khayelitsha Eagles easily despatched Hamiltons Black 13-0. The feature of the game was the four-run circuit clout from Bantu Sotayo in the first inning. Moses Molaba pitched a no-hit game, facing 16 batters with four free bases and 10 strike-outs. Terence White also performed with the bat for Eagles (2-3). Eagles will now face Hamiltons Green who dispensed with Westridge Yankees 12-3 in the other semi-final.
