Gazelle power over Wantoks

Gazelle scored the bulk of their runs in the first inning through some good batting that saw Regina Jerry, Matilda Pondriket, Angie Manuai and Sharon Pamel run home to score to lead 4-0.

Wantoks hit back at their second turn of bat in the next inning with two runs, thanks to the batting of Priscilla Samuel who powered a safe hit to the outfield to bring Winnie Parom home safely.

Safe on second base, Samuel stole to third from the next pitch and then eventually snuck home from a pass ball to trail by two runs.

Wantoks prove too good

Despite being four players down, the ladies in blue who are currently running second on the competition points ladder were a class of their own boasting internationals Sandra Birum and Fatima Rama.

Both engineered their side’s to a 5-1 victory.

 Though the premiership hopefuls started slow, missing four goals, three easy goals from striker Rama found the goal post instead seeing a struggling first half for the speedster.
