    Striking impression: X-Bats won their first match 18-1


The first week of Softball Bermuda’s 2018 season is in the books with a couple of teams dominating their games.

X-Bats quickly put the season opener out of the reach of FIU-Scared Hitless with an 18-1 mercy win in the B Division.

In the women’s division, Hardknockz managed a slim 16-15 victory over league favourites Angels. Hardknockz jumped out to an early 10-1 lead before Angels clawed their way back to tie the game at 15-15 in the top of the seventh. Hardknockz won on a walk-off single.

Last Monday’s nightcap saw PHZ Zebras race out to a 24-3 triumph over Outback Skylights. Outback’s pitchers had difficulty finding the plate.

Tuesday’s games were postponed because the field was too wet from the overnight rain.

Only one game was played on Wednesday as the Athene Warriors doubled up KPMG 10 to 5 in the Corporate Division. The next two games were rained out as the infield grew too muddy.

Blue Wahoos earned promotion to the A Division, but it was a rough opening match for them as they were routed by Docksiders 22-7. B Division club Hakuna Matata Charters put up a good fight against the A Division’s Paraquet Flyers, but went down to a 28-20 defeat.

Teams will swing back into action tonight at Bernard Park with Beach Bums taking on Chubb Kings at 6pm, followed by The Corporation of Hamilton versus Sunglass Shop at 7.30 before the action finishes off with FIU–Scared Hitless battling Platano Power at 9.
