Topeaka Softball League action


Timber Ridge Golf Course and Sandy Ridge Stables were the first teams to clinch second-half division titles in the Topeka Men’s Softball League last week.

Sandy Ridge Stables swept a doubleheader from the Outsiders by counts of 12-2 and 14-0 to gain no worse than a share of the Lower Division II crown with a 9-3 record. Champion Well Drilling, currently at 7-3, could tie for the title with wins in its final two games.

Timber Ridge sewed up the Middle Division championship with a 9-3 mark. D & R Miller Concrete finished a game back at 8-4.

With its split against Townline Stables last week by scores of 7-10 and 6-2, Streamside Woodshop all but salted away the Lower Division I championship with a 6-4 slate. Next best with 5-7 records were the Outsiders and Lord’s Seeds. Mike’s Automotive could catch Streamside by winning their last four games and if the leaders manage only a split of its final two.

The Upper Division chase remains in play though, at 8-0, Cedar Creek owns a three-game lead over ConCreations and Streetkids/Mojo, both of which stand 5-3.

In other action last week, Valleyview Blacksmith took a pair from Kountry Wood, 8-6 and 17-2, while AllPro Gas/Synergy split with Conncetion/MJ Acres, 27-26, 12-13.
