Fate in 2nd slot as softball season ends

11 September 2017

By Emz Frial

Members of Fate,  the only Filipino team in the
Hongkong Softball Association league, celebrate their feat. 
Hongkong Softball Association has ended its season for this year with Fate,  the only Filipino team in the league, ranked second. Joker was in first place, Phoenix  was third, and Astro, fourth.

The last match was played on July 13 at Shek Kip Mei field between Astro and Fate. The Filipinas easily defeated Astro, allowing them to take the second spot. The score was 11-1, in favor of Fate.

Fate started the game as an away team, and went to score immediately. The first inning saw Eunice Locop,  Myra Japitana and Don Gaborno each hitting the mark, with Astro managing to nail its first and only point in the game.

Fate’s Ma. Eva Mendez managed to post the lone score in the second inning.

 In the third inning, Japitana again scored making it 5-1 in favor of Fate.

With the rival team struggling to score, Fate’s team captain Gaborno called for substitution to give other players the chance to play as it was their last game for the season.

This seemed to invigorate the team, with three more points being added to its score, courtesy of Gaborno,  Liezeal Algonez and Romela Osabel.  The fifth inning ended at 8-1.

In the sixth inning,  three more points were added by Emelia Mabaquiao, Mendez and Locop, sealing Fate’s 11-1 win

Fate’s manager Law Wai-ho congratulated his team for a job well done, and treated them to early dinner as reward.

Fate is qualified  to go up to bracket A in the next season because of its strong showing, but Gaborno is planning to keep the team in bracket B, saying some players are not ready yet to play in the top league.

But, Gaborno said the decision is still tentative, as the final decision could only be reached after consulting Law.
