The final game of round 3 of the Port Hedland Softball Association’s comp at the weekend saw Jets defeat pirates in the A-grade game, claiming the win 5-3.

The earlier A-grade game between Hawks and Raiders was forfeited because of a short Hawks side, with a score of 7-0.

Jets were off to a solid start, leading in the first inning with two runs, but the next two innings were shut-outs for both sides.

In the fourth inning, Pirates equalled the score, earning one run, but were unable to surpass the Jets, who brought in two runners to the Pirates’ one run in the fifth inning.
