BDF IX, Wells Bofinet League Champs

| April 15, 2015

BDF IX men and Wells ladies are this year’s BoFiNet softball league champions. Both teams walked away with a prize money of P100 000 each.

Wells trounced Police IX 5- 4 in a nerve wrecking final. Jwaneng-based women looked poised to conquer as they were first to open the scoreboard in the first inning through Iponeng Molapong.

Police answered back in the second inning all thanks to Onalenna Ntibi who was navigated by Charity Isaac’s hit. Wells’s Doreen Tsima delivered a run in the second inning after Police catcher made an error throw to third base as it propelled to the outfield.

Ntibi yet again, scored another run for her team in the fourth inning to level score at two all. Koketso Seleka’s fly ball to the outfield loosened Police buttons as they dropped the ball, panicked and yelled at each other while Gaamangwe Moagi capitalised on that and dashed home to deliver a run.

Police thought they had the situation under control in the sixth inning as they started to smack powerful balls which saw top scorer Ntibi deliver a run followed by Otsile Moshabe who put her team in a promising position with point number four.

The one lead gap set the Police camp in a jubilant mood which seemed to have rubbed Wells the wrong way as they came in to the seventh inning guns blazing to finish what they started in the first inning.

Wells stomped the National Diamond with vigor knowing that it was a do or die and Othusitse Molatlheng did not disappoint as she thumped the ball to outfield to sail Kelebogile Lesesere and Kefemetswe Selepe home to wrap up the match with a 5-4.

BDF on the other hand had an easy sail as they trounced Panthers 10- 3 in the men finals in a game that was highlighted by two homeruns from BDF’s Witness Gaarongwe and Jury Manaka.
