Bantam Girls

Québec 11 Nova Scotia 1

Québec hammered-out twelve hits and rode the pitching of Camille Huppé (Gatineau, QC) and Anne-Sophie Lavallée (Boucherville, QC) to beat Nova Scotia 11-1 via the mercy rule. Québec exploded for five runs in the 3rd inning thanks in part to a single and a run scored by Huppé to help her own cause. Huppé struck out six batters in three innings before giving way to Lavallée for the final two innings. The loss aside, Nova Scotia received strong offensive performances from Kesley Brumm (Dartmouth, NS) who was 3-for-3 and Jenna Jackson (Steam Mill, NS) who was 2-for-2. Québec put up five more runs in the 5th, highlighted by a Gabrielle Lazzer (Otterburn Park, QC) two-run single to seal the victory.

Ontario 17 Alberta 0

Ontario jumped on the board with a seven-run 1st inning and never looked back as they defeated Alberta 17-0. Mikaela Kehoe (Amherstburg, ON) paced the offence with two hits and three runs scored while Jessica McKibbon (Toronto, ON) recorded the victory as she fanned six Alberta batters. Other top performers for Ontario were Victoria Saunders (Toronto, ON) with two hits, an RBI and three runs scored and McKyla Brasil Mississauga, ON) who went 3-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored.

Nova Scotia rebounded from their earlier defeat and scored a 16-6 win over Ontario 2 to pick up their first win of the tournament.
