Softball: Hawks score a major win
Jets powered their way to take out the Hawks in the Port Hedland softball major league competition last Saturday as new recruit and pitcher Donna Nordmann piloted the side to the win.
Nordmann pitched the full, seven-innings game and struck out six Hawks batters while conceding just four hits for a solitary score in the six-runs-to-one ball game.
Serina Lefroy slammed a double RBI two-base hit to score two runs in the opening innings to give Jets a three nil lead, while Nordmann and Jets defence took care of Hawks' batters.
Nikita Whitby made it two home runs for the new season as she powered the ball through centre-field to score team mate Shaikera Cabales and bring up a five-run lead to Jets in the third dig, and it wasn't until the sixth that Hawks put a score on the board.
Jen Price slapped a double for Hawks' first runner in a scoring position and Fiona Lockyer collected a single to drive Price in for the side's only run.
Vanessa Wainwright belted a triple and single for a 666 batting average for Jets, while Cabales, Whitby, Lefroy and Hannah Nordmann all picked up a hit apiece.
Lockyer led Hawks' averages with two from three, while Price and Melanie Tavo both picked up a hit apiece.
Earlier in the day Pirates opening at bat saw the side bring seven runs across the home plate against Rebels, with the score ending up 12 runs to three for Pirates second win of the season.
Lisa Harris drove in two runners off three singles for a 750 batting average for Pirates, while Rachael Green went three from five including a double and Tammy Wilson and Sara Leeds both earned two hits apiece.
Rebels' Rochelle Della led her side's effort with a perfect three from three hitting average and Gwen Franklin came in to bolster the defence as pitcher and struck out six Pirates and drove in two runs off her bat.
The Reserves results saw lead side PCYC defeat rebels 25 runs to eight.
This weekend there is a bye and all sides return on Saturday, June 7, while a Reserves fixture is scheduled for tonight starting at 7pm between Jets and Cougars.
