Week three of the 2018 State League season is another huge series of matches that will have huge ramifications on the top four.
In the women’s competition, 2.30pm on the main diamond will be the main event with the undefeated Manly Eagles and second-placed Northern Storm facing off. The Storm also face Panthers in their earlier game. Sharks will take on Hills and Panthers with tough matches in the middle of the ladder. Hills will be desperate to taste its first victory with difficult matches against the undefeated Manly Eagles and Sharks. The Manly Eagles finish the night with a match against the Sharks that was rescheduled.
For the men’s, Thurabredz – Tahi and Dolphins face off in a top of the table clash also at 2.30pm. Tahi will also play the Demons to kick off the day, while the undefeated Dolphins also play the rapidly rising Tropics. Tropics will have to be wary in the early game against the winless Thurabredz – Rua, who will also face United on the day. Mounties will look to hold its place in the top four with games against United and Titans. Titans are sitting on the edge of the top four and also have a game against Demons.
The State League is Softball NSW’s elite competition and will feature four of our Aussie Spirit World Championship squad, four of last year’s Junior Spirit squad in the women’s competition, as well as five silver medal-winning Steelers from last years men’s World Championship and 10 of our world champion Junior Steelers.
All games in State League will be played at Blacktown International Sportspark on Sundays and will run until finals weekend on October 28, with weeks off during State Championship tournaments. Weather on Sunday is forecast to be cloudy with a top of 16 degrees and a low of 7 degrees so make sure you rug up.
