Not the best day for three Souths softball teams
SOFTBALL: The two Souths teams, Blue and Black found the going tough against Rockhampton in Saturday's A-grade matches.
Rocky handed Souths Blue a lesson with an 11-1 win while Souths Black provided more resistance, but lost 6-4.
Souths Black player Teanne Noonan, 19, said the women from Rockhampton were tough opposition in what were warm conditions.
"Rocky are developing young players and they are really good players,” Noonan said.
She has played softball for 10 years all for the one club and admitted it was not one of her better games as the team's catcher.
"I played pretty average and was tired after being at work,” Noonan added.
Her team finished second last year and they are in the running again this year.
Noonan also represented Rockhampton and Toowoomba throughout her softball journey.
Players such as Rebecca Watson are just one of many top-line players who she has come up against.
"There are just too many to name,” Noonan said.
It was a tight match between Souths White and Telfords.
Telfords beat Souths White 11-8.
Meanwhile Dodgers and Jets put on a good show in the Junior Fast Pitch competition.
Jets won 13-8 while the other game was a one-sided affair where Indians handed out a 21-2 win over the Angels.
Indians' Connor Edgerton connected a low and flat hit for a home run and the team produced excellent running between bases.
A highlight for Angels was a superb catch from Anna Morgan
Indians defeated Dodgers 19-6 in the 3-Pitch format and Indians coach Joe Ludkin said it was a great batting display by both teams.
"There was a really good hit by Elijah Orr who hit a home run for the Indians,” Ludkin said.
He added the T-ball youngsters showed great skills on Saturday morning.
"The kids were having heaps of fun and the parents were on the field which was great to see,” Ludkin added.
Meanwhile Ludkin said the Wednesday night men's competition is proving a winner.
It's a double-header for the Souths team who take on Cardinals from 6pm on Wednesday.
Souths then have to back it up from 7.30pm against the top-ranked Blue Jays.
