Cardinals beat Demons 4-3 in the local Invercargill softball competition in 1976. This was an interesting game as it now puts them on the top of the table with Demons.
Earlier games saw Cardinals beat Panthers, were the leaders. Demons had struggled to beat Marist and really needed the win over Panthers to stay at the top.
In the play offs Cardinals got off to a fast start with John Purdue hitting a three bagger and Bill Somerville hit him home. Two innings later, Jock Williamson put his team even further ahead with a home run.
Demons turned the game around with Russell Frisby batting two runs.

Cardinals then came up against Marist and produced a great batting display in hitting five in the first two innings. Garth Tattersfield just returning from overseas showed his class by hitting a home run to put his team three up.
