Sparx hit Incas out of the park

SPARX’S unbeaten start to the Maryborough Softball Association senior women’s competition came under attack in round four at Fairfield Park on Saturday.

But the competition leaders stood firm and repelled Incas Silver to record yet another victory.

Sparx came from behind to win the game 12-8 after an impressive batting display in the final innings.

Incas Silver led 8-6 after their final hit-out before Sparx came out with all bats firing when it mattered the most, scoring six runs.

The win means Sparx has now won three games and drawn the other.

Not a bad effort when you consider the trouble Sparx was in this time 12 months ago when a lack of players forced the club, the three-time defending premiers at the time, to reluctantly pull out of the competition.

In the other game of the round, honours finished even after the clash between defending premiers Incas Cobalt and Aztecs Apaches ended in a seven-all draw.

Zoe Prove (two), Kim Ison and Tayla Barron all gloved catches for Incas Cobalt.

For Aztecs Apaches, Kelly Collins hit the only home-run of the game, while Carly Armstrong took two catches.

In the men’s competition, Incas Warriors beat Aztecs Indians 7-4.

Josiah Hess and Shannon Russell both took catches for Aztecs Indians.
