No points for softballers

Both the Kaiapoi men’s and women’s premier softball teams were winless over the weekend.

The Kings faced top of the table Papanui and went down 0-10. This means they finish in 5th place and miss out on the playoff this weekend. The Queens were defeated by Halswell in a closer game 1-4, but maintain their fourth place, and will play the PCU Angels in the 3rd/4th playoff, hoping to end the season a place higher.

At the end of round four, Kaiapoi Kings player Josh Lubiejewski finished 3rd in the men’s batting statistics, and Nerissa Bailey McDowell from the Kaiapoi Queens was 7th in the women’s batting standings. Lauren Sutherland, also from the Queens was 3rd in the women’s pitching statistics.
