Rainy weather caused postponement two of five schedule games as the Women’s Invitational Championships kicked off today at Tourmaline Field in Okotoks, Alberta with Québec, BC and the 21U Prospects picking up wins.
Québec clubbed 14 hits and scored ten runs in the fifth en route to a 16-0 win over the Ontario 2 squad. Sena Catterall drove in four runs out of the lead off spot while Anne-Sophie Lavallée scattered just three hits and struck out seven batters over four scoreless innings on the mound.
The 21U Prospects handed Ontario 2 their second loss of the day coming away with a 10-0 win. Katie Hagen tossed 4.2 scoreless innings on the mound while Kattie Heppner drove in two runs with a 2-for-3 day at the plate.
A battle between 2016 gold medal winners BC and two-time reigning gold medal winner Ontario went the way of the west-coast squad as BC prevailed, 10-7. Katie Reyes enjoyed a 4-for-4 day at the plate with two doubles and three RBI for BC while Amanda Asay went the distance on the mound with four strikeouts to earn the win. Emily Baxter had two hits and two RBI in the loss for Ontario.
Action continues on Friday and through the weekend with medal games scheduled for Sunday.
