Outlaws ready to strike out rivals as they chase both women's titles
SOFTBALL: Outlaws will be chasing the women's double in Softball Rockhampton grand final action at Kele Park today.
Outlaws Orange will play the Magpie Marvels in the B ladies final at 11.30am, while Outlaws White take on Bluebirds Bombers in the A ladies showdown at 3.30pm.
Both Outlaws teams finished as minor premiers in their respective divisions and want to finish the season with the ultimate prize.
Club president and A ladies player Sheryl Preston is expecting a good, hard game against Bluebirds, the reigning champions.
She said pitcher Kylie Coombe and catcher/third base Liahni Truscott had been consistently good for Outlaws this season and one of the team's greatest strengths was its batting.
"We just need to play as a team and play our normal game,” Preston said.
"I trust in the ability of our team and I'd like to think we can do it.”
Bluebirds president Alan Olive said the two A ladies grand finalists had played out some close matches during the regular season.
"They've played well as a team all year and that's what they need to go again on Saturday,” he said.
Bluebirds is well represented in the grand finals. Of the five finals being played, it is represented in three - the 15 years mixed, the open women and the B men.
