Glenthorn A’s kept their 100% season record with an easy 15-5 victory over Kenfac Phillies at Turfhall Stadium on Saturday.

The Phillies team was a shadow of the team that put in a classy performance against Tantasport last week. They were let down in defence when seven of the runs were unearned.

Pitching for Kenfac was Ester van der Heever, who gave up 13 hits. A’s used Courtney Stevens (two hits) and Lisa Erasmus (three hits). Leading the offensive for A’s was Lynn Lakay (3-3), Lisa Erasmus (2-3) and Courtney Stevens (2-3 with 4 RBIs). Phillies responded with a few scattered singles.

Falcons pip Yankees

Falcons kept themselves in touching distance of log leaders Glenthorn A’s with a last gasp victory over Westridge Yankees.

After leading from the start of the game, Falcons allowed Yankees to level the scores in the fifth inning. It was left to stalwart Lindsay Vercuil, who crossed the plate thanks to a passed ball in the last inning, that sealed Yankees’ fate.

Ammaarah Larney led the offensive for Falcons, batting 2-3. Nicky Jones pitched for Falcons, facing 32 batters and giving up five hits. Carly Davids (seven hits) and Megan Cable (two hits) shared the pitching rubber for Yankees. Yankees’ five hits were all scattered singles.

Lavender Hill on promotion push

Lavender Hill continued its march to the super league when it easily disposed of Kuils River Cougars (14-0) in a major league clash on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Heideveld Yankees kept hope alive for promotion when they defeated second-placed Belhar Dolphins 6-4.

Knockout competition

Sunday sees the Cape Town Softball Association’s knockout competition start at the Turfhall softball stadium. The big clash in the late game sees Westridge Yankees and Glenthorn A’s locking horns. Defending champions Falcons will find tough competition against St Martins.
