Softball returns for 2017
RIVERLAND senior softball got
back under way over the past week.
Due to extreme heat, games from
Saturday, January 7 were resched-
uled to January 11 and 18.
In the first of the rescheduled
round 10 senior games, Waikerie
forfeited to Loxton Green, while
in round 11 action on Saturday,
Cobdogla Gold recorded a strong
11-run win over Waikerie.
Cobdogla Gold got off to a slow
start after a double-play early in the
game by Waikerie’s Helen Johnson.
But it warmed into the game and
Waikerie’s inability to progress its
runners around the bases ultimately
proved the difference.
Renmark caused the upset of the
round by knocking off ladder leaders
Loxton Blue by nine runs.
Loxton Blue started the game well
with an early double-play, however
Renmark wasn’t going to be deterred
as it went on to record a strong win.
In the closest match of the round,
Lyrup claimed a narrow two-run win
over Loxton Green.
A strong performance by new
import Fiona Gray, who was on the
pitching mound for Lyrup, and a tidy
performance by Codie Tilbrook in
the field helped set up the win for
Loxton Green battled hard
throughout the game but a few cost-
ly errors ultimately proved the dif-
ference in the tight loss.
Waikerie forfeited to Loxton Green.
