The two female Super League games played at the Turfhall softball stadium on Sunday 24 November both produced tight finishes.

In a game that produced 24 hits, Glenthorn A’s edged out Kenfac Phillies 8-7 in the early game.

A’s started off with four runs in the first innings but Phillies’ Carla Swanepoel (2/4) was having none of that and cleared the boundary cones, scoring three runs in the process. Jenna Moses (3/4) fared best with the bat for Phillies with three scattered singles. Phillies came back strong in their last turn at bat but with bases loaded failed to produce when it mattered most.

The game was marred by both sides not able to capitalise on having runners on base with Phillies (10) and A’s (8) runners left stranded on base.

A’s took 15 hits off Ester van den Heever whilst Phillies scored nine hits off Lisa Erasmus who struck out three batters and gave up a six free bases.

Lefty, Courtney Stevens, was the pick of the A’s batting with a flawless 4/4, including a double. Former Old Mutual Cubs stalwart, Zulfah Stellenboom (3/3) and Chaunees Goliath (2/3) were the other top offensive performers for A’s.

In the late game Westridge Yankees held on to inflict a first loss on Lavender Hill beating them 4-3.
