Lavender Hill Softball Club squandered their chance of a maiden Cape Town Softball Association Super League title when they lost both their games over the past weekend.

On Saturday, the Hill lost to Falcons 4-2 in the late game at the Turfhall Softball Stadium.

In probably one of the most tightly contested Super League competitions in many years, Falcons flew to the top of a Cape Town Softball Association Super League on Saturday after their win. Falcons’ young Amy Minnies (five hits) had the better of her counterparts Grivonne Rhoda and Chesternay Fortune who shared the pitching duties. The pair jointly surrendered eight hits. Stalwart Lindsay Vercuil (2-2) and Ammaarah Larney (2-3) were the cream of the Falcons batters. At the end of the Saturday series only three points separated the top four teams. Falcons’s brief spell at the top of the Super League ended when they were walloped 7-0 by a rejuvenated Westridge Yankees side on Sunday. Lavender Hill’s loss to Glenthorn A’s (4-3) put paid to their title hopes with the A’s still in with a chance for league honours. With the last matches taking place on Saturday 9 March, Yankees who last won the league in the 2011/2012 season, are currently leading the pack with 47 points with A’s and Falcons following closely on 45 points. With three points for a win, the league title can be in any of three hands come Saturday evening. Tantasport beat VOB (4-3) to save their Super League status. VOB will join Normies in the Major League next season.

Saturday’s fixtures:

16:00 - Glenthorn A’s v Falcons (A)
