The University of The Bahamas (UB) Mingoes women’s softball team were tagged for eight runs in the second inning to the defending New Providence Softball Association (NPSA) Champions Wildcats, and went on to lose in three short innings, 15-0, on Tuesday night on the Bankers Field at the Baillou Hills Sporting Complex.
The Mingoes allowed three runs in the opening inning but the Wildcats bats, coupled with several defensive errors, put the game too far out of reach.
Thela Johson picked up the win for the Wildcats. She hurled a one-hitter and had five strikeouts and no walks. Kevinique Stubbs suffered the loss for the Mingoes. She gave eight hits and all 15 runs. Stubbs had just one strikeout and walked three batters.
“It was a total lack of defense from various players in the second inning,” said Head Coach Shane Albury. “Players were playing in positions they don’t normally play but they still needed to know what to do with the ball. Many players just weren’t aware of what was going on. It was a total lack of communication and a lack of defence.”
The Mingoes play the Strikers in their next game, on Tuesday, August 13 at 7p.m. on the Bankers Field complex.
