Panthers Bite Wells Women

| January 19, 2015

Panthers, on January 17, resumed the BOFINet softball league with a win as they walloped Wells women 5-3 at the National Diamond.

Nevertheless, Panthers were stalling at the beginning with their morale low and one could rule them out as contenders. Panthers’s Lesego Rankwaila’s run in the first inning kicked in some energy in the camp as they challenged Wells to pull up their socks.

Wells failed to answer back in the first inning while Panthers once again scored two runs by Onneile Phalalo and Lereng Mokgotlhe courtesy of Rankwaila’s smack.

It was in the second inning when Wells retaliated through Isang Isaiah’s strike to the outfield which sailed home Doreen Tsima and Isaiah later registered another point from Cheludo Johane’s hit.

Wells leveled the score in the third inning as Kelebogile Lesesere sprinted from second base to give her team the much needed point, thanks to Othusitse Molatlheng’s smacker.

Panthers came into the fourth inning with vigour as Mokgotlhe hit a ground ball that crawled between the second base’s legs to outfield which catapulted Mpho Setlalekgosi from third base to home.

Wells’s second base once again blundered while all bases were full as Neo Seth’s hit slightly touched her glove and propelled to outfield as Mokgotlhe delivered point number five for Panthers.

The last three innings were a dry spell for both teams as every team fielded tightly. After the ladies encounter, Panthers men narrowly beat Wells in a pulsating duel that ended in penalties.

Both teams had scored a point each in the third inning and went for a tie breaker of which Panthers added three more runs while Wells on the other hand managed to score two as the former won the game 4-3.

In a dramatic turn of events, Blue Angels men failed to honour their game against Wells as the latter were seen warming up at the grounds while Blue Angels were nowhere to be seen.

Match officials acted accordingly and handed Wells two soft points to.
