MGSA 2018 Playoff Wrap

Erindale softball teams brought home hardware from the recently completed MGSA playoffs. On the weekend of September 15/16, our two Mite, one Squirt and two Bantam teams saw action.

In the Mite White pool, both the Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP 001 and Tim Horton's 002 teams entered with one loss from the previous round. After facing each other later Saturday afternoon, Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP 001 was victorious. Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP 001 would win another game, pitting them in the final against the top team in the regular season, from Etobicoke.  After tying the game with 4 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning, Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP 001 eventually went down to defeat in the 2nd extra inning to claim the Silver medal.

High Five Photography 101 came into the Squirt Blue pool playoffs on a roll, winning 6 of their last 9 games. After winning three games in the first round, they qualified to play in Sunday's final, and awaited their opponent. The top ranked Blue pool team from Milton would not be a pushover. However, High Five Photography 101, came out strong and rode to a victory to claim the Gold. MVP was Kaylee Y.

Erindale 302 had the upset of the first round, defeating the pennant winning Erindale 301 in a close game. This set up an early morning tilt in the second round, which was a tight affair, before 302 went down to defeat, sending them to the bottom of the bracket.
After that first round loss, Erindale 301 needed to come the long route to get back to the final. Crushing their opponent on Saturday evening, they needed to beat three of the top four teams to claim gold. Winning their morning game set up a mid day rematch with 302. Erindale 302 would put up a valiant fight before 301 pulled away to clinch a spot in the final.
In the final, vs the 3rd ranked team from Etobicoke, 301 went to work and handily won the first game, setting up a "winner-take-all" game. In a tightly played, back and forth affair, 301 eventually ran out of steam losing by one run to take the silver medal.

Congratulations to all our softball players for a great season and representing Erindale with pride.

Team Canada Players Come To Squirt Practice

Squirt 101 got quite the surprise on Thursday night, when three players from Softball Canada Women's National Team dropped by Martin Dobkin during their practice. The players showed the Squirts a few tips, signed a ball for each player, and most of all showed them what lays ahead for every young softball player. Thanks to Jenna Caira, Janet Leung and Natalie Wideman.
