Turvey Park, yet to win a match this season, will be hoping to end their long run of outs when they meet Saints in this Saturday’s only A Grade match of the Wagga Female Softball League at French Fields.
Of course, the Saints will be all out to prevent that happening, as another win over the perennial grand finalists would see the Saints take over outright top position of the points table, following their 1-0 victory, last Saturday, over current top of the ladder, South Wagga Warriors.
Instrumental in their success last week was the pitching of Tessa McGlynn, whose work with fellow school girl, Kadison Hofert, is becoming stronger each week.
Despite not registering a win as yet, Turvey Park’s batting has been well above average, particularly statistically.
Of the players expected to be available this Saturday, there are seven batting 300 plus.
With such a strength in offence, it’s obvious Turvey Park has to improve their defence.
Seemingly little errors at the time have given opposing teams an opportunity to capitalise on those Turvey mistakes and score consequent wins over Turvey.
The Saints will look to the likes of the McGlynn sisters, Tessa and Gemma, Michelle Tabisz, Morgan Pearce, Alison Burgess and Hofert to make base, giving Turvey runs to chase.
Meantime, rest assured, Turvey Park players will be aiming to tidy up their fielding and have an error-free defence, giving them every opportunity to record their first win for the Wagga Female Softball League season.
