Schooners remain unbeaten in men's softball

SOFTBALL: Despite a dominant win over the Bargara Bulls, the Waves Schooners refuse to concede they are the team to beat.

Winning 16-3 over the previously unbeaten Bulls, the Schooners now remain the only team with no losses after three rounds.

Pleased with their performance, Dave Field said the team started well.

"We led off 7-0 in the first inning and followed that up in the next three innings with some great batting," he said.

"What sealed the game for us was our infield work and our pitching and catching combination."

With the team starting well this season they admit it is too early to decide if they are number one.

"We haven't looked that far ahead with eight teams in the competition," Field said.

"We are just consolidating week by week and putting in some strong performances and tidy up where we need to."

"We still have a few areas where we need to improve."

Field said that Tyler Duggan was the stand out player for the team with his great glove work throughout the match.

In other results, the Bargara Bombers secured their first win of the season in a strong team display over the Western Suburbs Lynx.

Scoring the most runs for the day they won 17-7 with the Brothers United Heat defeated the Eels / South Sluggers 9-6.

In the women's competition The Waves are still winless but did secure a 6-6 draw against the Bargara Bullets.

Maintaining their unbeaten run the Bullets remain at the top of the ladder.

In the other contest the North Bundaberg Eels defeated Brothers United 14-3.

The next round of both competition will be held this Saturday.
