Ducks softball players win their way to finals
Teams with players from the Peninsula Ducks Softball Club have won their way through to the T-ball and modball finals in the Central Coast Softball Association competition.
The teams are made up of players from the Ducks and the Bateau Bay Decoys.
Ducks' president Ms Di Barrymore said: "Modball won 14 to 12 over Mingara White in their major semi-final, after chasing runners in the third innings and letting Mingara back in the game to trail 12 to 10 at one point.
"They took control in the top of the fourth inning though, batting in four runs before keeping Mingara scoreless in the bottom of the inning to come away with the win," Ms Barrymore said.
"The Teeballers had a nail biting 19 to 18 win over Mingara in their major semi.
"After a slow start, the kids powered along with great hitting, fielding and base running.
"I'm so proud of our ducklings," Ms Barrymore said.
In other results, the Ducks Juniors lost to Mingara 9 to 8 in their minor semi-final, ending their season in fourth place.
The Ducks Women's Division 4 Purple team were eliminated in their semi final by the Decoys 8-4.
They're also fourth on the ladder with their White team just behind them in fifth.
