The Lady Eagles continued their ascent up the standings after nipping Kosebakl, 11-10 in the women’s division of the 2022 Budweiser Belau Amateur Softball Association League last Sunday at the Dandan Softball Field.
The once middle-ranked teams in the standings now have gone seperate ways with the Lady Eagles in the upper echelon with a 4-3 win-loss record, with Kosebakl going the opposite direction at 3-4.
The Lady Eagles did not have it easy as they were shut down in the first three innings of the game by Kosebakl pitcher Jenny Scaliem. Their first run did not come until Lynnae Cabrera crossed home plate in the fourth inning.
More runs came in later during the fifth inning when Ikelau Ngirarois, Felisa Brel, Bel Igitiol, and Verlynn Secharmidal scored one run each, to catch up a little closer to Kosebakl, 9-5.
The game started to turn around in the sixth inning when Kosebakl scored only one run and had no runs in the last inning, which triggered a rally by the Lady Eagles to score six runs in the final inning for a close final score of 11-10.
Verlyn Secharmidal contributed the most RBIs with four, while Glare Mabel had three.
On the Sunday before this game, the Lady Eagles defeated the 670 Babes, 18-13.
The 670 Babes are in the bottom of the standings with two wins and four losses.

It was the sixth win in seven games for the Queens of the Diamond, while Tokahao Ladies continued their slide down the standings with a 1-6 card.
Kiana Aldan started with a leadoff run which trickled down to the next couple of batters, Kiana Camacho and Rachel Salalila, to bring the Queens up 3-0.
