Sisters claw Bears 10-4


MINOR premiers United Sisters brushed aside a strong challenge from Bears to book the first grand final berth in the qualifying final of the Port Moresby women’s softball competition on Saturday.
Led by mother and daughter combination of Selina (pitcher) and Tessa Karai (catcher) the pair helped their side to a 10-4 win at the Bisini diamonds.
Sisters were tested by the Bear brigades led by Francisca Kinit, Mathilda Pagal and Rosalia Apelis who helped their team score four runs. Sisters heaped on five runs in the first inning through Tesa Karai, Priscilla Moke, Zilpah Ene, Georgina Mautu and Clare Wutt and the Dick Bart-coached team added one more run on third to take an unassailable 6-0 lead.
Bears fought back in the fifth inning with four runs through Joyce Inguba, Nadia Bais, Antonia Kinit and Lisa Polum.
Sisters responded with two runs in the fifth and sixth innings to claim the win.
In the elimination final, Wantoks knocked out Yokomo 8-4.
In the men’s final, PNG Power proved too strong for Brown Eagles winning 10-1 at the bottom of the fifth inning on the runner-head rule.
