Gazelle victorious over Eagles

Three runs at their last turn of bat secured a 4-2 win for Gazelle over Brown Eagles in today’s A grade match of the Port Moresby Men’s Softball Association competition at the Bisini Grounds.

It was a scoreless first two innings with both sides unable to convert their chances to score into points.

Gazelle hit the lead at the top of third when former Eagles pitcher, Clement Okole snuck home to make it 1-0.

Gazelle added three more runs in the next inning from passed balls which saw Okole, David Mickey and Harry Matthew scored.

The boys from Matupit gave Gazelle a scare at their last turn of bat when an overthrow to first base allowed Daniel Pennie and Consie Lumaris to sprint home.

But the pitcher and catcher combination of Okole and Francis Tony ensured no more runs were conceded to win the week four match.

The game was called off at the bottom of the fourth inning due to time catching up.
