United Sisters

United Sisters retain softball title

Runs scored by Priscilla Mocke and Florence Daple put United Sisters in front at 2-0 after the completion of the first inning.

United Sisters took things up a notch with their batting in the second inning piling on four more runs with a display of power batting from Mocke, Daple and Georgina Mautu.

Bears seemed to have no answers to the mother and daughter combination of Selina Karai on the pitching mound and Tessa Karai at catcher.

It all looked bleak for Bears at the bottom of the third inning when the deficit increased to seven runs.
