Warriors Lose Final Two Games

August 14, 2013

The Edmonton Warriors lost their final two games of the season to the Sherwood Park Athletics 7-3 and the Edmonton Athletics 15-4.

The NCABL play-off matchups have been determined and will be played as two three game series' with the Camrose Axemen taking on the Westlock Red Lions and the Edmonton Blackhawks squaring off against the Sherwood Park Athletics.  The League Championship Semi-Finals are scheduled for August 17-18 in Westlock and the winners will play a best of three series the following weekend, with the host to be the highest ranking team remaining.  Good luck to the four teams and see you next season!

Lifeless Warriors Lay An Egg

July 30, 2013

After being eliminated from the post season on Sunday, the shorthanded Warriors layed an egg in a 8-3 loss to the Stony Plain Mets dropping their record to 5-10-1.

The Warriors showed up with nine players and zero energy as they only had one hit off of starting Mets pitcher Mike Cote, a flare into right feild by Cornelius Friesen in the third inning.  They would score three runs late as relief pitcher Steven Cote walked a couple of guys and two Mets errors led to the three runs. 

The crazy thing is the Warriors picked up the first hit by either club in the bottom of the third but trailed 2-0.  Starter Jason Lewis did not give up his first hit until the fourth inning but struggled mightily with his control.  He would walk eleven batters in his five innings of work.  The Mets would get all four of their hits off of Lewis in the fourth sandwiched between three walks allowed them to score five in the inning.  Evan Hoffman worked two innings of shutout ball in relief.

The Warriors are right back at it on July 31 as they travel to Sherwood Park to play the second part of the earlier rained out doubleheader.  The Warriors stole a victory from the Athletics last week and with Athletics battling for the pennant they will for sure be looking for some revenge.

Warriors Play-Off Chase Ends With Doubleheader Losses

July 28, 2013

The Warriors chase for the post season came to a screaching halt after two losses to the Edmonton Blackhawks in doubleheader action.

Game one saw Cornelius Friesen starting for the Warriors trying to build on his dominant performance against the Sherwood Park Athletics four days previously.  Friesen struggled with his control on the cool and windy day as he walked eight batters.  Three of the six runs he gave up came in his final inning, the sixth, as he showed signs of frustration and fatigue.  Riley Pawliw would serve no better in his two thirds of an inning to start the seventh as he would walk four and hit one giving up five more add on runs.  Evan Hoffman would pitch to one batter inducing a pop out to end the inning.

The Warriors offence was not much help for Friesen as they would collect four hits in the first two innings and last two innings each but really stalled in the middle three innings.  They could not get nothing going against Blackhawks starting pitcher David Schneider in the middle frames which enabled the Blackhawks to run away with it late in the game.  Lee Forsberg and Evan Hoffman both had mulit hit games in the loss.

Game two saw Curtis Burlet get the call for the Warriors on the mound and the big lefthander surrendered ten runs, four earned, on thirteen hits.  Although the Blackhawks hit around the Warriors pitcher the big inning came in the fourth.  With the score 2-1 for the Blackhawks, the Warriors defence committed two errors in the inning allowing five unearned runs to score.  This deflated the Warriors entirely and the Blackhawks would go on to win 10-2. 

The Warriors struggled to hit Blackhawks pitcher Mike Holroyd in game two of the double dip as he held them to two runs on five hits.  Three of those hits came in the first two innings and once again the offence stalled in the middle frames.  Cody Rude picked up two hits in the contest and reached base safely all three times he came to the plate. 

The Warriors have two more games this week as they host the Stony Plain Mets on Tuesday @ Footz Field and then travel to Sherwood Park on Wednesday to complete the second game of the rained out doubleheader.  Both games start @ 7:15.
