Mmegi Online :: Wells maintain stubborn pursuit of BDF IX








Competition will certainly intensify in the second round with top four spots in sight. The top eight draws four top teams from the southern and northern tiers in May.Wells went to the Christmas break trailing the log leaders by two points and have since maintained the gap albeit with a game in hand.BDF are on 20 points while second-placed Wells have amassed 16 points. However, Wells will play struggling BMC in the only outstanding match from the second round. The league clubs are on a break this weekend with the second round expected to resume next weekend.

Botswana Softball Association (BSA) competitions organiser, Renny Molete said the teams will take a breather and only return to the field next Saturday.The second round looks likely to be taxing with the clubs placed within the fourth place and ninth bracket separated by a margin of just two points. UB Giants, now in eighth place, had the best finish after two wins against Blue Angels and Bears last weekend.Giants' star Oteng Sesupo said the two wins were a big motivation for the students after struggling earlier in the round. Going into the weekend, they had only managed to win three of their eight fixtures."We had not won many games but the last two games we played extremely well. It's motivating and everyone is eager to do better in the second round," said Sesupo.In the ladies side, Bears maintained pole spot with 14 points from seven games. Bears lost once this season while second placed Vikings have lost twice and trail them by two points. The last seven games of the round look intriguing as BDF IX are also in with a chance as they share the same number of points with Vikings.
