In the world of local co-ed softball security in the standings is everything.
This year’s fall edition is so tight that any team with a playoff spot already can be a source of envy.
Thus much talk centers around 10-2 Home Gas. The A league stalwart wrapped up the breadfruit division title once again.
The clincher came last week in an impressive 19-8 beat-down of the 7-4 Cayman Coolers.
Coolers, Home Gas’ division rivals, are looking squarely at third place in the division with the loss.
Ahead of the Coolers in the standings are 8-3 Jose’s Escape who are fresh off a 16-9 victory over woeful 1-9 Deloitte Canadian Bacon last week.
Elsewhere in the A league KM Ltd have a slim lead in the Cassava division at 8-2. The team is a game up on the resilient 7-3 Caybrew Chuggers.
KPMG A have the third seed in the division wrapped up at 5-5 while Master Batters look to finish in the cellar at 3-8.
The tight B league continues to offer much drama into the last game of its season this Thursday.
One of the few teams that can rest easy are the Anchor Construction City Slickers. Thanks to the best defense in all of co-ed softball (allowing just 65 runs) the side is 7-3-1 atop the Silver Thatch division.
After them it’s all up for grabs. Currently Doghouse are in second at 5-4 but the PWC B Experience and Maples Sluggers are in the hunt at 5-4-1.
Maples helped their case with a 9-4 win over Julius Baer last week.
Lurking in the cellar are the 4-4-1 Ritz Carlton Jesters, who have allowed just 94 runs (second-best in the B league).
Julius Baer are holding on atop the Banana Orchid division at 9-2. The club is just ahead of the 7-3 KPMG Bounty Hunters.
Third place is a dog-fight between the Hellcats and Senor Frogs who are both 4-6-1.
Both clubs are looking to avoid finishing fourth and facing 2-8 Dolphin Cove next Tuesday in a ‘wildcard’ game to make it into the B league playoffs.
C league regular season winner Electra-Tech Pure Energy face off with fellow C league team PWC Scorpions in a best-of-three championship series starting next Wednesday.
