Big hits dominate softball games

ROUND two of Rockhampton Softball brought some more big scores across the grades and one or two surprises.

Allstars dominated their A-Women's match with Outlaws to win 8-5.

A highlight of the game was Allstars' great batting and the display by 16-year-old Jakobie Massey, who pitched for the whole game.

There was disappointment in A-Reserve, where Frenchville's Easy Riders recorded a 17-11 victory over Frenchville Green on the diamond but then lost the competition points after failing to hand in a team card.

In the other game Screamers came away with another win based on their strong batting and fielding, beating Frenchville White 23-10.

The win also featured a mother and daughter pitching effort, with Karen and Jessica Dwyer doing the job.

A 17-0 scoreline tells the story in the B Women, with Magpies Diamonds beating Frenchville Red.

They then went on to beat Outlaws 18-6.

There were also highlights in the junior competition.

In the under-17s Nathan Bryant pitched the whole game as Magpies Magic beat Outlaws 30-1, while Magpies Mojo also had a big win over Frenchville, with Layne Dougan and Michael Noonan sharing the pitching duties.

This week Jessica Austin, Mikayla Olive, Jessica Van Helvoirt, Jade Cowley, Amy Rook and Rheanon Preston will represent the Capricornia Secondary School team in Toowoomba, starting tomorrow and ending Sunday.

Positions will be up for grabs in the Queensland Secondary School team, with Preston being a member for the past two years.
