See who was playing sport over the weekend

It was all horses and bats and sticks in Tamworth over the long weekend. Despite a distinct lack of oval shaped balls Tamworth still hosted a swell of enthusiasm. 

HOCKEY

It was a case of mission accomplished for Tamworth’s No.1 women’s side –and it was done in the most emphatic fashion.The Frogs ended their two years out of the top division with a 10-1 thumping of Orange in the division two final of the open state championships at Narellan on Monday afternoon.

BASEBALL

INTERPORT Masters scored a 12-0 mercy-rule win over Deadstars in the A division final of the June Baseball Carnival at Tamworth’s Field Of Dreams on Monday. Sam Holland led the way for Interport with a powerful display on the mound, throwing 51 strikes in a 75-pitch six-inning success.

RACING

EXITOZO has run three shockers at his last three starts but can throw all that aside when he contests Tuesday’s $20,000 John “Mouse” Sinclair Cup (1600m) at Quirindi. Scott Thompson prepares the six-year-old son of Excites at Quirindi and would like nothing better than for the gelding to rediscover his best form in a race named in honour of one of Quirindi’s racing legends.

BMX

Speaking through a crackling phone line from Baku, Azerbaijan, young Jack Davis was too concerned about the future to overly lament the recent past. On Thursday the Tamworth teen was eliminated from the 16-years category at the BMX world championships in the quarter-finals, after coming off worst in a first-corner scuffle with two Colombians.
