Our first tournament was in Mississauga on June 6th and once again rain played havoc with a tournament. There was over a three hour delay and no washrooms or food! The enthusiasm to play began to fade. With little game play or practice against teams who have been playing indoors since January we unfortunately lost all three games. The girls did however leave with a stubborn determination to do better next tournament.

We are in Erindale on the 24th of July and Brampton on August 8th


ERINDALE- July 24th

Ashley Wallace is a new edition to the team we had four girls who could not attend so a big thank you to peewee Gabrielle Desroches for helping us out. Thanks to  Fred from Ward and Patch and our sponsors, we looked awesome in our new uniforms.! We started out slow Mississauga was ahead by 9 runs by the third we played stronger as the game went on containing them to only 3 more runs in 4 more inning and bridging the gap with 5 runs of our own. We won our second game 20 to 4 against Ennismore. The day was interesting from here we started our third game late and in puddles another downpour had us stop for rain delay at 4:26. (the score at this point was 6 to 3 for Brampton) Several teams pulled out and left. We switched diamonds to restarted at 5:45 first and home plate were under water Mel would sink half way to her knee in water pitching a second torrential downpour had them calling the game. ( score 14 to 4)The diamond was a lake the organizers were considering a 2 hour delay ( 9pm start) and try to finish the games. At this point we decided to pack up there were no clear skies in site you couldn't even see the diamonds. When we left there were two local teams huddled under tents at the park. Our assumption is we finished as the wild card. ( I keep checking the ossta site) The girls had fun and there were plenty of smiles looking forward to our next tournament and hopefully sunny skies!

Wow it didn't RAIN! We played well but loss to Topham 7 to 3. We beat Mississauga  4 to 3 (this one was sweet) and finished 2nd in our pool. We went on to beat Burlington 20 to 4. The last game was close all the way through finishing 7 to 6 for Whitby. We finished 4th overall. The girls were determined to improve over the tournaments moving from last to 4th is awesome it may have had something to do with Guy having to wear nail polish if they won ha ha! Looking forward to next year!
