Western Suburbs Lynx for second

Western Suburbs Lynx can take the outright second-place position on the Bundaberg Softball Association premiership ladder into the Christmas break with a win over Souths Sluggers tomorrow.

After a shaky start to the 2009 campaign, last year’s minor premiers begun to build momentum and are looking to snatch second place from the Sluggers at Frank Coulthard Oval tomorrow.

“We know it’s a big game for us, it will put us in a good position going into the Christmas break and it’s always good for moral to go into the break with a win,” coach Angela Rohdmann said yesterday.

Throughout the early part of the season, Lynx was nowhere near the formidable force it was in 2008 when Rohdmann’s charges took out the minor premiership and lost to United in the final.

The side struggled for consistency early in the season with players missing for work commitments and the star trio of Liam Mackay, Jordan Nairn and Damien Nairn missing matches to compete in representative duty.

“We feel like we’re finally starting to find our feet and get a bit of that consistency,” Rohdmann said.

Across the Waves is still the class of the competition, sitting four ahead of their nearest rivals in the league with 26 premiership points.

Sluggers and Lynx are locked together in second place with 22 points.

But that will change this weekend when one of the teams leaves Frank Coulthard Oval victorious.
