News not so good for Wests
While their women celebrated a momentous upset win, the Wests Sabretoothed men were on the end of a 13-3 hiding on the adjoining field.
The under-manned Sabres, still nursing Christmas hangovers, were no match for Souths Sluggers as they edged ahead with the big win.
Playing with only eight men the score line blew out and did not truly reflect the game, but the win has now put pressure on second-placed Wests Lynx after their loss on Saturday.
Across The Waves 8, who occupy first spot on the table, accounted for the Wests outfit 10-5.
It keeps them kicking in top spot, while setting up an intra-club showdown between Wests Sabretoothed and Lynx next weekend.
“They are both more or less equal on points now so everyone is already excited about that one,” Sabretoothed coach Michelle McKeown said.
Only two runs separated the sides in the other men’s game between United 7 and United 8.
United 7 ran in 9 runs to edge out their club rivals, but still have some ground to make up on the rest of the field if they hope to avoid the wooden spoon.
