An exciting and friendly game between the Sinners ladies certainly did not reflect the score.

Sinners 2 started strongly and had the Sinners 1 team a little worried.

Cass Foster joined the ladies from Sinners 1 for her first-ever game and showed everyone that despite being new to the game, she was strong with the bat. Sinners 1’s Narelle Walton pulled off two great home runs in the game, with two fabulous catches from Leanne Khan playing at third.

Rhiannon Wingate was very active at shortstop for Sinners 2 and played a determined batter as well. The ladies of Sinners 2 showed how far they had come with some great batting and fielding. However, once the Sinners 1 team dug in deep, they took the game convincingly, 22-6.
