The first week of the 2019 Softball Ulster League has come and gone in a spectacular fashion. Three games in total took place over the weekend, with the Bucs hosting 2018 league winners the Brawlers in Bangor, the Angels hosting the Smokin’ Aces at Hydebank and the Sliders giving up their home advantage to join the Cubs at Strandtown on Monday night.
The first of two games on Sunday, the Brawlers won 25 runs to 3 against the Bucs, who made use of the run ahead rule after the fifth inning. Elsewhere on Sunday, the Smokin’ Aces won 26 runs to 9 against the Angels, giving Belfast Softball Club a double win over the weekend. On Monday night, despite losing their home advantage, the Sliders won 26 runs to 12 against 2018 league runners up the Cubs. All-in-all it was an exciting first weekend of softball in Ulster.
So far the 2019 League table looks a little bit like this…
