At the end of a full first season of Softball cricket, Abbots Women’s Softball team faced Exmouth, Ivybridge and Ottery St. Mary in the County Super 8’s Tournament at Chudleigh Cricket Club.
Having played both Ottery and Ivybridge in friendlies during the season, the team knew to expect tough games from both, with Exmouth being the relative newcomers to the format.
They managed to go unbeaten on the day and go one better than last years runners-up spot to win the Devon County Super 8’s tournament, in a hard fought and close match against Ottery St Mary 137 to 120.
The season has gone very well for the Women’s softball team, and despite an early season loss against a very experienced Paignton Women’s team, they managed to top the Devon League – South Division standings, and win all of their friendlies too!
Congratulations to all of the competitive and friendly players, and to all of those who attend Wine and Wickets on Fridays, who all contributed to the success of the Women’s Softball team this year.
