Falcons Softball Club stayed in close contention behind frontrunners Lavender Hill with a hard-fought 9-5 victory over Kenfac Phillies in their Cape Town Softball Association’s Super League game played at the Turfhall Softball Stadium in Athlone on Saturday 7 December.

The Falcons batters amassed 13 hits off Ester van den Heever with Samantha Jones (3/4) and Amy Minnies (3/4) leading the offensive attack. In addition to the 13 hits, Falcons left six runners stranded on base. Young prodigy Amy Minnies continues to improve among her senior compatriots, giving up only seven scattered singles on the pitching plate for Falcons.

A welcome return to the game was Natalie Abrahams for Westridge Yankees. She faced 27 batters – six more than the minimum – giving up a mere single hit to Tantasport’s Justine Stewart.

Rhonda Minnies was not going to be outdone by the younger players and led the Yankees offence with a 2/3 batting performance.

Roxanne Albertyn gave up six hits on the pitching rubber for Tantasport.

The first half of the season comes to an end on Friday 13 December with a Vintage Series Softball Extravaganza at Turfhall Softball Stadium starting at 19:00. The series will see the stars of yesteryear in action.
