Giants Blue have slipped to their second loss of the Hutt Valley Major B women’s championship, beaten 14-2 by fierce rivals Stokes Valley at Fraser Park, Lower Hutt on Saturday.

The Blues sorely missed their first-choice pitcher Renee England for the clash, and Stokes Valley took full advantage, cruising to their first victory of the top four playoffs.

The loss won’t impact severely on the Blues’ prospects, with only the order of seedings for the semifinals to be decided.

The Blues remain second in the standings behind Wainui, who they will play in the first match of a doubleheader on Saturday.

They will complete their round-robin against Totara Park Gold in Saturday’s second game.

The semifinals will be played on March 20, with the final set for the following week.

Giants Red were beaten by Dodgers Divas and will play Saints in a bottom four clash on Saturday.

There was disappointment for the Giants Under-15 side, whose match against Hutt City United at Fraser Park was washed out.
