SOFTBALL: The new women's Bundaberg softball season could not have gotten off to the worst possible start for The Waves.

After forfeiting their first round A-Grade match against the Eels, the team were forced to do the same against Brothers United this week.

With players away at the men's open championships, The Waves failed to have enough players which handed the defending champions the win.

To make sure both teams still remained match fit, a friendly was arranged with the teams drawing at 11-11 after the final inning.

Despite not getting the result in the ideal way, Brothers coach Nadia Dittman said it was good to have a hit out.

"We have new players coming into the side and we are adjusting how we play,” she said.

"With both Brothers and the Eels now having their own team (after being one team last year) we know it is going to take a while for everything to click.”

"This team knows it has what it takes to potentially go back-to-back.”

In the other result Bargara remain the only undefeated team in A-Grade after beating the Eels 8-4 on Saturday.

In a tight contest between last year's grand final teams, three late runs to the Bullets set up their second straight win.

Player Gemma Bush said the team had started the season in the perfect way.

"Eels are a strong side and we are really happy with the result.”

"They have quality pitchers so it was good to get so many runs.”

Meanwhile the Bundaberg Softball Association said all problems relating to player registration would be solved by the start of play this weekend.

President Christine Bertram said they are working with Softball Queensland to quickly solve all issues as soon as possible.

The next round of the A-Grade competition will be held this Saturday, with the men's competition to resume after Bundaberg finished sixth in the men's open championships on Sunday.
