The current adult co-ed softball
season is only two weeks old, but it’s already happy days for the PwC
Scorpions. The club won its first two games this year and already have half of
last year’s win total.
The latest triumph came against ElectraTech
Pure Energy with a 22-11 assault. PWC’s bats were alive and swinging in the
early innings as the majority of runs were scored in the opening three innings.
Much of the offence flowed from local sportsman Terry Ballard. The former local
motorsports racer and Future Sports Club guard smashed line drives all over the
field. He had lots of help from skipper Simon Gill, who has been with the squad
since the days when the side endured a two-year winless streak.
Gill stated it’s great to enjoy
“The win was another great showing
for us,” Gill said. “We shot into the lead with scores of seven, then seven and
four in the first three innings. They scored most of their runs in the third
and fourth innings. We had some good hitting from Terry, some good defensive
play from Jenn Mark at second base and very consistent pitching from Tony Mark.
The runs were spread around with everyone chipping in. I must say we had a very
impressive debut for Andrew Armstrong at shortstop. Oh, and of course, that
Simon Gill fellow did well leading from the front.”
