X-Bats pick up narrow win over Paraquet


It was a Bermuda Day shortened week for teams in the Bermuda Softball leagues.

X-Bats edged Paraquet Flyers in a low-scoring A Division affair 8-7. The two sides battled back and forth with both scoring three runs in the fifth inning to keep the game knotted at seven runs.

Andrew Bonner scored the winning run after being walked and advancing to second on another walk before coming home on a single. Dustin Luck was 3-4 in the X-Bats victory. Graham Frith was 3-3 for Paraquet and knocked in three of their seven runs.

Sea Venture remained unbeaten with a 21-11 win over Platano Power. Blue Wahoos avoided being reeled in by Hakuna Matata Charters to swim away with a 24-18 triumph.

Docksiders took an early lead and never relinquished it in a 16-12 triumph over Chubb Kings. Gary Adams (4-4) blasted a homer and drove in for runs for Dockies. His team-mates Jevon Roberts (4-5) and Mike Sakata (3-4) also knocked home three runs each.

Les Dzwenka was 5-5 in the leadoff spot for Chubb while coach Kyle Smith was a perfect 4-4. Both players homered as did Josh Hart (3-5, 4 RBI) in the losing effort.

Team Smokey burned the Beach Bums 15-10 in a B Division contest while FIU-Scared Hitless had a lopsided win over Raggamuffins 24-7. In the beach Bums’ victory, Lateef Trott (2-4) homered twice and knocked in four runs.

Smokey’s Dean Douglas (4-5) and Joelvis Diaz (3-4) also swung the bat well. The Beach got nearly all of their runs from Donald Folkard (3-3) who homered twice and drove in eight. Courtney Fisher was 2-4 for the Beach.

In a C Division contest, Super Express chugged their way to a 13-11 victory while Buffaloes picked up a forfeit win over Shooters.

In the lone Corporate Division match, KPMG hoisted a mercy win by beating BEST Shipping 19-4.
