Bull fires Arrows home

DEAN Bull is a big hit with the women.

Well, he is with those he plays softball alongside with.

The 15-year-old smashed a home-run for Aztecs Arrows in the Maryborough Softball Association senior women’s competition round two showdown against defending premiers, Incas Cobalt.

Bull’s big-hit helped his team crush Incas Cobalt 16-1 and ensure Aztecs Arrows unbeaten start to the season continued in style.

Boy’s aged 17 and under are allowed to play in the women’s competition and another boy, Zac Thatcher, also contributed in Aztecs Arrows win.

He gloved two catches while his aunt, Melissa Tobin, also grabbed one in the impressive win.

Another boy, Josh Hard, took a catch for Incas Cobalt.

Thatcher, whose grand-mother Bev, is the team coach, said he had no problems whatsoever about playing in the women’s competition.

“It doesn’t worry me at all – I just love playing the game,” Thatcher, who started playing the game when he was four, said.

“Besides, the women play hard.”

In the other game of the round in the women’s competition, Sparx Hyne ensured it was a disappointing day for the Incas club after beating Incas Silver 4-3.

Karen Hansen grabbed a catch for Sparx while Leeanne Murtagh (four) and Teagan Hoyes (two) starred with their gloves for Incas Silver.

After finishing their duties in the women’s competition, Dean Bull and Zac Thatcher were back in action on the diamonds in the men’s competition for Aztecs Indians against Incas Warriors.

The pair again played leading roles in the 18-17 victory for their team, with both taking catches while Mathew Sauer also took a catch.

Jai Sandow hit a home run for Incas Warriors while Cameron Butcher grabbed a catch.
