Cops’ accusation angersEARL HAUPT

Community members of Manenberg arestanding up to what they feel are unjus-tified accusations.

This follows reports in People’s Post overthe last two weeks in which police have ac-cused community members of attackingthem while they were trying to arrest sus-pects.Roegshanda Pascoe, Manenberg Safety

Forum’s chairperson, says that althoughshecommends the willingness of the police to

FROM PAGE 1However, he goes on to say that educationin the community will play a vital role onthe road to recovery.

“Our communities are trapped in pov-erty, not just financial poverty. We arelooking at spiritual poverty, we are look-ing at mental poverty and educationalpoverty and this definitely leads to thementality of ‘it’s not my job, it is your job’.That is what the community tells us – thatwe get paid to do it. The other thing thatgets thrown in our faces is that they say:‘We pay your wages, so you need to do thework.’ But it is not about that, it is abouteach community member.

“For instance, you have the cleansingdepartment which is supposed to beautifythe area, but because people keep ondumping their dirt in places where it cre-ates a total mess of things, [the cleansingdepartment] ends up just working oncomplaints and don’t have a chance or the

time to actually beautify. We need tochange the mentality of ‘this is not mywork’. It is our duty to keep the placeclean so that when the council comesthrough, they can beautify the area andthat will maybe lead to a change in thearea,” he says.

Pascoe also adds that a stronger dia-logue and community involvement is im-perative if the two parties are to work to-gether to quell the recent flare-up in vio-lence in the area.

“I told them personally, let me comeand sit with the map with you and I willmap out Manenberg for you and I willshow you where and what is happening.I will even go as far as to say who is whoin the zoo, so that the police stop runningaround like headless chickens, becauseotherwise we are not going to be effectivetogether. We are not going to stop any-thing.”

PHILIPPI

TIYESE JERANJI@jeranji

After spending 36 years in the police, Brig-adier Riaan Booysen says it’s time to

make way.Booysen has been the commander of Wyn-

berg police station for the past four years.He is taking early retirement, as he believesit’s time to give new blood the opportunityto lead.

He says it’s time to concentrate on otherthings, as he has done his work over theyears.

Born in Philippi, he matriculated fromZwaanswyk High School in Retreat in 1978.He became a soldier and underwent militarytraining at Kimberly Infantry School in Pre-toria. Thereafter he worked in several de-partments, including the department oftransport. That’s where he got a transfer tothe police in 1983. He started his police ca-reer at Wynberg police station.

He was later transferred to Claremontwhere he became a detective in 1985.

Booysen says Wynberg holds a specialplace in his heart, because it’s where his ca-reer as a police officer took off and where itended. He was also baptised at the Dutch Re-formed Church which is a few metres awayfrom the police station. He also met his wifeof 33 years, Judith, at the church.

Starting out as a young detective he wasworried whether he would know the differ-ence between murder and death due to a nat-ural cause.

“I was wondering if I would be able to dis-tinguish the two. Fortunately, I had the besttrainers, very experienced people, and theymade everything very easy. This was mydream. I was very excited, but the most excit-

ing part of the job was walking out of thecourtroom knowing you have secured a con-viction. It gives a sense of fulfilment and be-ing able to go back to the community and saythis is what you can do,” he says.

As a detective Booysen has had an excit-ing career. He has worked on high-profilecases, like police killings, several Pagadmurder cases and explosives cases, the Gold-en Arrow bus killings and the murder ofMarike de Klerk, ex-wife of former presidentFW de Klerk. He also helped in the Sizzlermurders case in Sea Point and worked onseveral armed robberies and rape cases inwhich international tourists were the vic-tims.

He was the detective commander at policestations in Manenberg, Nyanga, GrassyPark, Gugulethu, Diep River and Athlone,where he had to deal with inquest and mur-der cases. He and his team dealt with 1600murder and inquest cases from Khayelitsha,Gugulethu, Nyanga and Langa in a year.

He was also appointed as a police diverand had to recover several corpses and pie-ces of evidence.

In 2000 he became the provincial com-mander of serious and violent crimes, wherehe led units like urban terror, murder, rob-bery, gangs, taxi violence, firearms and thechild protection unit.

In 2006 he was appointed the Woodstockcluster commander and later that year hetook responsibility for the Cape Town clus-ter. He was also the station commander atStrand police station before heading back toWynberg police station as its commander in2012.

“There comes a point in your life whereyou feel you have done it all and there isnothing more to achieve. It’s now time to

give the new generation an opportunity totake over. I leave the station happy becauseI know they are a good team who are alwayswilling to help and serve the community,”he says.

Though he is a man of vast experience, heattributes all his success to teamwork.

“There are people who work tirelesslybehind the scenes and they make workeasy for you. Without them Iwouldn’t have achieved the thingsI achieved. What is re-ally important is towork as a team and ateam is as strong as itsweakest link. Whensomeone is lagging be-hind things won’t work.With the cases that Iworked with, chain evi-dence was vital, al-though one inves-tigator wouldhave to see a high-profile casethrough court.Having everyoneon the same levelwas of utmost im-portance as you can’t do everything alone.”

Angie Latchman, Wynberg policing clus-ter spokesperson, says Booysen is known asa hands-on commanding officer who led byexample.

“He has been a good mentor to all of us.Many look up to him for knowledge. He hasgreat insight and he does things by the book;he is a disciplinarian. It’s sad that he is leav-ing us but with the same breath we wish himwell. He has been with his family in blue forover three decades; now he has to spend time

with his immediate family. Like they say,once a policeman always a policeman; hewill be looking over us. We salute him forwhat he has done,” she says.

Riaan and Judith Booysen have two sonsand two grandchildren.

Yesterday was his last day in the office. Hesays it’s time to focus on his business. FromJuly he will practise in his own company,Riaan Booysen Polygraph and Private In-vestigation, where readers can contact himon 074 203 6658.

Brigadier Riaan Booys­en, who was born inPhilippi, has worked inthe police around CapeTown for 36 years.

A diamond anniversary, but theystill feel very young.

This is the story of Rashad and Fati-ma Harrison, who celebrated their60th wedding anniversary on Friday.The couple says they “didn’t feel the

years”.“I couldn’t believe it when we said

this year we will be married 60 years.For me it still feels like we are only to-gether 35 years,” chuckles Rashad.Their love story started in 1952when

Rashad met Fatima at her familyhome.“I worked at a shipping company

that was based in Strand Street andwould often pop over to this one placefor lunch. One day when I was there Imet this lady who was very good look-ing. The lady in the shop must haveseen me and said: ‘Hey, don’t fall inlove with this lady. She is married.’This lady was in fact Fatima’s eldestsister,” Rashad recalls.Animatedly, he explains that Fati-

ma’s sister then said: “I do have a sis-ter.”“Her sister then invited me to their

home. This is where I met Fatima andI still feel the way I felt that day whenI met her. I went to visit her manytimes after that and eventually a fewweeks later I asked her parents if Icould be Fatima’s friend and theyagreed,” he says.

CourtingFatima recalls they courted for about a

year before they got engaged.“When he proposed I was 18 and we mar-

ried two years later. He was 23 when we gotmarried. Since we got married he has takencare, really good care, of me,” Fatima says.“I was just sitting earlier on, looking at

the time and thinking what I was doing thatspecific time on my wedding day. I worethree dresses on that day,” says Fatima,who has been a housewife since they mar-ried.The two lived in Strandfontein for about

30 years before settling in a quaint place“ideal for just the two of us” in Ottery.“My son did not want us to be on our own

and so far away from them andsaid we should come live withthem.“Because we are very inde-

pendent I told him I did notwant to live with him and hisfamily in one house and so wehad a cottage built at the backof their home and this iswherewe will spend the rest of ourdays ... if the New Zealand bugdoesn’t bite,” Rashad laughs.

Secret for loveAsked what their secret is to

keep their marriage going forso long, he says they “do every-thing together”.“When we do things, we do

it together.Whenwe travel,wealways go together and thathas kept us going for so long.It is so sad to see couples whogive up so easily on their mar-riages in today’s age. I believeour generation is way differ-ent.”The two agree that they keep

active lifestyles as well “tokeep us young”.“We often go out together

and spend lots of time doingthings with our families.“Rashad is, however, very

active, because he still swimsand cycles in the area. I don’tthink he wants to know he isgetting old,” laughs Fatima.

The couple have three children, all ofwhom are now also married.“I always make a point of praying for all

our children and grandchildren who havemarried,” Fatima says.The Harrisons have eight grandchildren

and 10 great-grandchildren.Their youngest great-grandchild was

born on their anniversary on Friday.

CAPE TOWN CARNIVAL

Whatever floatsyour boat hereGARY VAN DYK

@gvdcapejazz

Visiting the Maitland workshop wherethe floats and paraphernalia are being

made for the Cape Town Carnival is an ex-citing experience.

At first glance it seems as if you’ve walkedonto the set of some futuristic science-fic-tion film with grinders setting off sparks inall directions from, at times, garish crea-tions. Hammering rings through the airfrom all corners of the property. And thenyou realise that this is where the festival isreally “made”.

On Saturday 12 March the public will ex-perience the glamorous and glittering pa-rade on the Fan Walk in Green Point, butlast week the media got to see the more seri-

ous side of how it all gets put together at aworkshop in Maitland.

Fun workShaam Stringer is a fabric artist from

Ocean View who has been part of the festi-val for six years.

In front of him streamers are starting toform a fantastic flower (or is it a face?) amidan array of wires.

He assures me it will all make sense onthe day.

“It’s been a wonderful experience for me,”he says. “I got involved through a friend andnow it is an important part of my life.

“When I watch the parade and hear howpeople cheer for what I am part of creating– that makes me the proudest. And of courseit’s so much fun!”

The carnival also attractsattention from overseas,with, for instance, carnivalartist Yasmin Long from theUnited Kingdom addingtouches.

She is an intern from Brou-haha International in Liver-pool where she is studyingvarious aspects of carnivalproduction.

“This has been an excitingtime for me to experiencehow people are excited aboutthe event and all the commu-nities that are involved.

“I can’t wait to experiencethe event on 12 March.”

Yasmin Long from Liverpool in the UK is living in Muizen­berg while working as an intern for the Cape Town Carnival.“I can’t wait to experience the event on 12 March,” she says.

Join CWD for their activitiesEARL HAUPT

@EarlHaupt

Catholic Welfare and Development (CWD)has called on the public to continue to in-volve themselves in their programmes.

The CWD, now it its 46th year, operatesprimarily in the Western Cape and workswith marginalised communities in CapeTown such as Gugulethu, Samora Machel,Khayelitsha, Phillippi, Masiphumelele,Delft, Tafelsig, Bo-Kaap, Atlantis and Ma-nenburg.

“It provides that platform and opportu-nity to explore, learn and reflect aboutmaking better choices for themselves asthey aspire to attain their dreams with in-creased confidence. People learn valuablelife skills through the participation inspiritual drama productions, songs andcultural games to boost their self-esteemand improve their mental health,” saysKaren Pillay, CWD’s marketing and fun-draising manager.

CWD’s interventions aim to representtangible efforts to seeking solutions tovarious problems that prevail in impover-ished communites, as it contributes to thewell-being, social development and stabil-ity of all in the communities that it serves.Some of the activities at the centre in-clude yoga classes, information and ad-vice centres, music schools as well as li-

braries and coffee shops.The yoga classes are open to the public

and takes place every Saturday morningfrom 09:30 to 10:30 at 146 Lawrence Road.The yoga instructor is Roseline Nyman.She says that the sessions are her way of“paying it forward” to the very communi-ty she came from.

There is a nominal charge of R10 persession.

“The mission of the organisation is topromote an integrated and inclusive ap-proach that recognises human dignity inaccordance with the social teachings ofthe Catholic Church.

PHILIPPI

Police look forrobbers’ lootPolice records showsburglaries, theft and

robberies are on the increase in Philip-pi.Philippi police spokesperson Lieutenant

Lance Goliath says police shifted their fo-cus to second-hand goods dealers and she-beens last week because of this.“What usually transpires is that looted

items from burglaries, theft or robberies ei-ther get sold for cash to the community orto second-hand dealers. Most of the timecriminals use cash to sustain an addictionto drugs or alcohol, apart from feedingthemselves or buying clothes,” Goliathsays.He further says the “law requires the per-

son selling any item to a second-hand dealerto produce identification” which gets re-corded in a prescribed register.“Second-hand dealers or private buyers

in the community seldom ask for proof ofpurchase, therefore police keeps an eye onsuch second-hand dealers – and often she-beens too – where looted items are disposed

of.“Police will continue with their focus on

thosewho illegally buys itemswithoutmak-ing sure that it’s not an item that was lootedin a crime,” Goliath says.Last Thursday police arrested a “well-

known figure” in Hanover Park for sellingalcohol.“A large quantity of liquor was confiscat-

ed. The 55-year-old woman was arrested inAlgoa Court,” he says.Police station commander Colonel Den-

nis Abels says police will continue clamp-ing down on crime and criminals.“Policewillmaintain their zero-tolerance

approach in the combatting and investiga-tion of crime. The community is urged notto buy items which they suspect or knowwere looted in a crime.Theywill open them-selves to be arrested and face the full bruntof the law,” Goliath warns.V Anyone with information on crime can call the po-lice on 021 690 1500 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.All information will be treated as highly confidential.

IN THE GARDEN

Grow yourown ediblesA water wise vegetable and herb gardenhas the benefits of saving youwater and be-ing a source of healthy nutrition.Nick Stodel, MD of Stodels Nurseries,

gives tips to keep your home greens in shipshape in this hot, dry season.

Water wise bedsKeep traditional square or rectangular

beds that channel the water to the plants.Making the beds slightly lower will help tocreate a pocket for thewater. But be carefulwhen walking on the soil between theplants – you don’t want it to become com-pact and decrease absorption and increaseevaporation.

Water saving granulesThese can save up to 50% on water usage

as well as give your plants a slow releasefeeding. Combine products such as Aqua-soil with the soil used for planting.

Shade netsYou can either cover your whole veggie

orherbgardenor thoseareaswhere the sunis a lot harsher. This reduces evaporationand allows faster absorption of water.Remember thorough, less frequent wa-

tering encourages the roots to grow deeper.In this way the plants can thrive duringtimes of drought or little watering.

MulchingMulching is one of the quickest, easiest

and most cost effective ways to conservewater in your garden. Mulch is any sub-stance placed on the soil surface, aroundplants, to keep moisture in the soil.The best sort, organic mulch, comes

mostly from plant sources. They breakdownwith the help of earthworms. You canuse compost, grass cuttings, pine needles,milled bark, straw, peat, crushed mealiecobs, autumn leaves and shredded paper.Inorganic mulch has materials that do

not break down but keep moisture in thesoil, like gravel, pebbles and stones.“Enjoy the ‘fruits’ of your labours and

keep those veggie and herb gardens thriv-ing during this hot and dry season,’ saysStodel. “There’s nothing nicer than eatinghomegrown food straight from the garden.”V For more tips visit www.waterrestrictions.co.za andwww.stodels.com.

LETTERS

UIF is a verylong call awayfrom paid[The letter writer has been trying todraw his UIF benefits.]Last Tuesday I tried calling the

labour department. Someone eventuallytook the call, after it rang for more thanten minutes. She answered and politelytransferred the call to another depart-ment. Another ten minutes later nobodybothered to take the call and then cutme off.Immediately I called back. Nobody,

but nobody, took the call.Maybe we can get the Athlone group

to show the Town Centre group how itis done. I have been there more thanthree times and still no help from them.They keep saying the paperwork is notin order.I have another date for tomorrow –

can’t wait to hear what’s going tohappen tomorrow.[He returned last Wednesday.]I’m fed up and they don’t realise that

we need to borrow money to come backall the time.I had an appointment to go sign again

for unemployment.I spent the entire day there only for

them to tell me that my documentshave not been captured on the systemyet.I eventually left at 13:00. I was there

from 07:00 in the morning.I’m not happy with the service here

and would like to know where I cansend my complaints to.

Debt review not so easyI wish to comment on the editorialcomment “Ignoring debt will not make itgo away” (People’s Post, 16 February).I wish to advise that the article paints

a very easy and trouble-free future forpeople who are in debt, suggesting thatdebt review would ease their pain.This is not entirely the full story.I was on debt review for nearly seven

years and for most of that time it reallydid not matter as I was using my ownmoney to pay for things.The trouble started when I wanted to

get off the debt review as the companythat had applied for my restructuring hadsubsequently closed and my file washanded over to a new company.I was sent a letter by the new compa-

ny, but could not make sense of itimmediately.It was only later after months and

months of trying to locate the people thathad placed me under debt restructuring

that I found the letter from the othercompany that had taken over the ac-count.But they were of no service to me

because they were never paid to do so.I managed to acquire the self-exclusion

form which is required should you wishto opt out of debt review.The lesson to be learnt here was that

getting into debt review was easy, butgetting out was frustrating.Without the proper information re-

quired at hand, one could face one of themost miserable days as no creditor orbank can help you if your status report isdebt review, regardless of how yourfinancial situation has changed.Debt review is not the answer, but

learning to know how to work with yourown money and applying faith-basedprinciples will save you from hardship.

Mistreatment at UIF officesI agree with the letter writer in People’sPost (“Claiming UIF is ‘controlled cha-os’”, 16 February). I have been to theAthlone office thrice and the office isvery slow. Twice I went to one assistantand to another the other time. The firsttime I went was in October, but I am yet

to receive my maternity leave UIFmoney. I was not informed properly andhad to take my forms back to work threetimes. I hope I can get my payouts beforegoing back to work.

DESIRÉE RORKE@dezzierorke

The first time she laid eyes on him, AlanaWitberg’s heart was ripped from her

chest.“He had the saddest eyes I had ever seen

on any animal,” she says about Snowy, thelittle Arctic fox that was rescued by theNSPCA from a petting zoo in Johannesburglast year and relocated to Butterfly WorldTropical Gardens outside Cape Town.Alana is the curator at the park.“When asked by the NSPCA if we could

accommodate him we said yes in a heart-beat.“He was in a terrible condition – over-

weight with overgrown nails and rottenteeth. It was clear that he had a tough life,”she says.The four-year-old male is a victim of the

illegal exotic pet trade in South Africa, andis believed to be one of 16 Arctic foxes re-corded in South Africa.Since he arrived in October last year, the

team at Butterfly World had gone the extramile to ensure that the remaining years ofSnowy’s life – another three to eight years– will be as comfortable as possible.“Arctic foxes originate from the arctic re-

gions of the Northern Hemisphere, and areadapted to living in very cold environ-ments.“The hottest summer days they experi-

ence in the ice tundras are 17° degrees,while they are quite comfortable at -50° de-grees during the long winters,” she says.

Now lives with female Cape foxIt is unimaginable to comprehend how

Snowy survived the hot African conditionsat the cramped petting zoo, where he waskept for years.“He was skittish and trusted nobody, and

very, very unhappy.”He was immediately set up in a tempera-

ture controlled environment at ButterflyWorld and Alana spent countless hourswith him to gain his trust.“In fact, we have cleared and refurnished

a two-bedroom flat with a bathroom all forSnowy’s use. Since it is very stressful for

him in the heat, he is kept indoors to remaincool,” she says.Here he especially loves lying on the cold

bathroom tiles and was joined by Leila, aplayful female Cape fox.“Hewas very lonely andwe brought Leila

in for companionship. Although she seemsto rule the roost with her dominant person-ality, the pair get on very well, and Snowyhappily submits,” says Alana and adds thatSnowy will soon be getting the “snip”.WithPeople’s Post’svisit lastweek the iro-

ny was not lost on us – an Arctic fox findingsolace and contentment in a tropical park.When Alana took him out of his cool en-

closure for one of two daily strolls, it wasclear that much had changed for this adora-ble little creature. He was in tip-top condi-tion, playful and curious with lively and in-quisitive little eyes.“He loves his strolls and needs the exer-

cise, but can’t stay outside in this climatefor too long. He starts panting very quicklyif it is too warm.”

AmbassadorSnowy is now an ambassador at the park

in their attempt to bring about awarenessregarding the exotic animals pet trade.“We hope that his story will make people

think twice before keeping an exotic pet.”If you would like to meet Snowy you can

go along to the park during his daily walks.On Saturdays and Sundays this is be-

tween 10:00 and 11:00 and again at 15:00 and16:00, depending on the temperature.“He will be walked on his harness by an

animal handler who is available to answeranyquestions andassistwith aphoto oppor-tunity.”V Call Butterfly World on 021 875 5628 for more infor-mation.

Hellenic Football Club have kept theirleague aspirations alive followingtheir 4-1 home victory against a lethar-

gic Grassy Park United side in a Safa West-ern Cape regional ABC Motsepe League en-counter at the UCT astroturf field on Satur-day.While Hellenic, affectionately known as

the “Greek Gods”, are on song in theirleague campaign, Theo Hempe’s GrassyPark United are now singing the blues.United, togetherwith Ikapa Sportingwere

the only teams in the top five to suffer de-feats.Sporting fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of

Steenberg United.The two teams now sit on 34 and 33 points

from 19 matches and, with the gap wideningbetween them and the top, their chances ofclaiming a stake of the league trophy is slim.Glendene United, the defending league

champions, fought a tough battle to beat RCAthletico 1-0 in Kensington on Friday afterbeing kept to a 1-1 draw by United in a mid-week fixture.Glendene United maintain their position

at the top of the league standings.Glendene United have 42 points after 20

matches and Hellenic are second with 41points after 19 matches.Third-place Steenberg United, on 37

points, have played 18 games and simply

cannot be ruled out from the league race.The results confirm that all three front

runners are very much in with a chance ofwearing the league crown. It would give thechampions an opportunity to strike it big atthe promotion national play-offs for a berthin the national first division competition.NeverthelessHempe’s United sidewas un-

able to continue its good form. Team mem-bers appeared to have tired legs and as a re-sult, never really got into gear.Nevertheless, the Greek Gods never

looked in danger against the Southern Sub-urbs visitors. They held a 1-0 lead for the bet-ter part of the first half thanks to SlovoMra-wa’s goal. Waseem George made no mistaketo level matters for United.After the start of the match in the second

half, the Greek Gods found the back of thenet three more times and made full use oftheir chances in goals by Fabian “Tucker”Wareley,Mickyle JacksonandThandoBooi.The team was without its top marksman Al-fonso Fraser, who is serving a three-matchsuspension.V Full results from the ABC Motsepe League: GlendeneUnited 1, RC Athletico 0; Steenberg United 2, IkapaSporting 0; Milano United 2, The Magic 2; Barcelona1, Crystal Palace 0; Atlantic Nacional 2, Mitchell’s PlainUnited 1; Zizwe United 3, Black Cats 2; Hellenic 4,Grassy Park United 1; Ramblers 2, Atlantic Nacional 2;Ikapa Sporting 1, Zizwe United 0; RC Athletico 2, AjaxCape Town 1; Glendene United 1, Grassy ParkUnited 1.

School soccer players to beregistered on Safa appJOSEPH PILLAY

An initiative by the South African FootballAssociation (Safa) to register all school soc-cer players on a digital platform, starting atyouth level, could lead to a fruitful outcomeon all fronts.The aim of the exercise is to communicate

with Safamore effectively and to combat ageand other forms of identity cheating in thesport.According to Safa, soccer players will be

issued with a digital identification card thatcan be validated pitch-side using a free mo-bile app,which is currentlybeingdeveloped.Dennis Mumble, Safa CEO, says he is

proud that Safa is the first national sportingbody inSouthAfrica to launchadigital iden-tification project for school-age players.“This project will eventually wipe out age

cheating, a scourge on our beautiful game.Many people still approach us about agecheating, but because of lack of proof, in

most cases we are unable to do anythingabout it. With this new system, we are ableto track a player from first registration,”says Mumble.The project in the long-term will be used

as a tool for talent identification as well.“This project represents the first step in

Safa’s digital ambitions that include regis-tering all Safa stakeholders, including play-ers, referees and coaches by 2018,” saysMumble.Likewise, the competition systems and an

amateur soccer results website will belaunched in 2017, which Danny Jordaan, Sa-fa president, says forms part of Safa’s great-er, more longer term objectives.“These technology initiatives are another

important piece of Safa’s vision 2022. Howteams and federations use technology sepa-rates the merely good from the great. Thesesystems will be the foundation of our talentidentification pipeline for all our nationalsides,” says Jordaan.

It was sweet revenge for Falcons as theyavenged their earlier defeat against West-ridge Yankees in a Cape Town Softball Asso-ciation Super League match at Turfhall Sta-dium on Saturday.The Falcons, down 2-3, scored two earned

runs in the final and bottom of the fifth in-ning to send Westridge Yankees packing toa 4-3 defeat.Earlier this season, the Mitchell’s Plain

side starved off a stiff challenge by Falconsand beat Falcons 5-0.Falcons started pitching with Natalie

Abrahams, who was on the mound for 4.1 ofan inning. She faced 24 batters and allowedfive hits, while relief pitcher Nicky Jones(0.2 of an inning) faced nine batters and sur-rendered no hits.Featuring among the five single hits for

Yankees were Megan Cable, Jackie Adonis,Charmelle Whiteboy, Glynis Koopman andNuraan Williams (each 1-3). They also per-formed well in the field, making only twofielding errors.Yankees pitcher Cable faced 22 batters in

her five innings. While she conceded onebase-on-ball and earned six fanned scalps,Cable surrendered only four hits to Saman-tha Jones (1-1), Bettina Philips (1-2), Aama-rah Larney and Abrahams (each 1-3).ThewinmarkedFalcons’ 16th in 19 games.

They have one drawn result and two losesto date.With 49 points to their name, coach Andre

Alexander’s Falcons are second on the log –two points behind defending championsGlenthorn A’s. The A’s have played one few-er game.

Glenthorn A’s trounce VOBGlenthorn A’s trounced VOB 10-3 on Sat-

urday. Besides their outstanding fixtureagainst Westridge Yankees, they will meetNormies on Saturday and Falcons next Sat-urday to complete their 21 league matches.Should they emerge with maximum points,nothing will prevent them from clinchingtheir fifth consecutive league title.. Meanwhile, in the weekend’s other MajorLeague games St Martin’s sent Tantasportreeling to an 11-4 defeat. Kenfac Phillies re-corded a 16-10 win against Normies.
