Barely 24 hours after Westridge Yankees clinched their first Cape Town Softball Super League title since 2012, they were stunned by the youthful Kenfac Phillies team in the knockout final played at the Turfhall Softball Stadium on Sunday 10 March.

The last innings of the game, with Phillies leading 2-0, saw the stadium erupt into all sorts of emotions that only knockout finals can deliver.

A close call at home plate by the umpire, Ernest Yon, saw Yankees close the gap and eventually take a 3-2 lead with hits from Shinay Erasmus and Candice Bull scoring the three runs. A three-base hit by Jamie Peters, followed by an intentional walk by Yankees opting to give big-hitting Carly Petersen a free base, saw the nerves taking its toll on the players. Megan Cable tossed a routine play over first base resulting in three runs scored, which saw the title handed to Phillies.

Saturday’s league games were an exciting affair. In the early game of the day, Glenthorn A’s beat Falcons 7-0 to move to the top of the log temporarily, and in so doing put themselves in with a chance to win the league title.

As a result, A’s were then rooting for Lavender Hill to beat Yankees in the later game.

Yankees’ Candice Bull then proceeded to take the game by the proverbial horns to first clear the men’s distance fence for a single home run and then batted in Nuhraan Williams to record a 2-1 win and the Super League title. For Lavender Hill, Tamzyn Daniels scored the only run with an infield home run.

Khayelitsha Eagles caused a major upset in the men’s Major League when they beat the favourites, Hamiltons Green, by two runs to one in their knockout final. Eagles’ Moses Molaba was on fire on the pitching rubber striking out 12 of the 26 batters he faced.

Molaba gave up only three hits and five free bases. Lloyd Stevens took charge of the pitching duties for Hamiltons and gave up only one hit to Terence White, who eventually crossed the plate on an error from left-fielder Clayton Manuel. Some wayward pitching by Stevens in the fourth innings saw a further run scored by the Eagles. Veteran Carl Michael’s hit to left field scored Lindsay Kersschoff for Hamiltons’ only run.
