Point Clare Public School boys’ softball team competed successfully in the Primary School Knockout competition at Umina Oval on Tuesday, September 16.
The boys played in rounds four and five against Woodport Public School and Tuggerah Public School respectively. They won a close contest against Woodport with a score of 13 runs to 10, and went on to win with a score of 16 runs to 11 against Tuggerah. Point Clare Public School softball coach Mr Colin Cashman said: “This game was the Central Coast final and winning the match makes the team the Central Coast Champions. “Our boys will now play the team that has won the Hunter division at Caves Beach on Wednesday, October 22, as there are now only eight teams left in the knockout. “During the games Lewis Franich was faultless on first base and he batted very strongly. “Tim Cuthbert had a few big hits as did Alex Shedden, and Riley Mitchell provided some very clever base running. “Congratulations to the whole team for holding their nerve when things were very close and for being great ambassadors for the school,” said Mr Cashman.
