HOME OF THE 2017 MIDGET SOFTBALL SELECT CHAMPIONS
The Cardinals Midget Select softball team captured the OSSTA Midget Select Softball championship on Aug 19/20 in Whitby.
Due to injuries, and other absences, the team had only 9 healthy players for Saturday. Facing three round robin pool games, the girls started strong with an 11-1 victory over Waterloo, followed by an 8-1 win over Oshawa. Game 3 was a back and forth affair with Brampton, that resulted in a 5-4 loss and a second place finish. Sunday's path to gold would not be easy: four games in a row, starting at 8:30am. Facing North Bay, the team jumped on their pitching with two home runs by Anna and Veronika to win 7-4. Game two against Kitchener started off rough, trailing 6-0 after a half an inning. The girls rallied, halving the lead after one inning, and taking a 9-6 lead after 3 complete innings. The team was able to hold on for a 10-9 victory.
The win set up a rematch with Brampton, with the victor playing for gold and the loser for bronze. Playing hard out of the gate, the Cardinals took a 4 run lead in the first inning, adding 5 more in the second, on the way to a 12-1 win.
The final was against Topham Park, a team we had beaten three times already this season. An outstanding over the shoulder catch by Emma in RF, ended a first inning Topham threat. The Cards scored runs in the 2nd through 6th innings, on the way to a 10-1 win, and a gold medal.
