Coldwell Banker 13, Scotiabank 12

The CI Little League Girls Softball division continued on Thursday, August 6th, as Coldwell Banker edged first place Scotiabank, 13-12, in a very entertaining game. The contest actually began on Wednesday but was halted in the first inning due to a swift moving thunderstorm, with Coldwell Banker leading 3-0.

On Thursday Coldwell Banker picked up right where they left off, scoring eleven runs over the first two innings, with clutch hitting, great base running and taking advantage of a few walks. Scotiabank rallied with nine runs over the final three innings to nearly overcome the early deficit.

The decisive plays came in the fourth inning. Annie Hawkins and Kenia Rostran scored on a 2 run single by Aydis Rostran to give Coldwell Banker a 13-11 lead, giving Scotiabank a chance to win in the bottom of the inning. Kenia, playing catcher, then made two great plays to save the game for Coldwell Banker. First she tagged out a Scotiabank runner who tried to sprint home on a passed ball. Then, after Aleigha General had scored to make it 13-12, Kenia threw a perfect ball to Madison Malice, who tagged out the potential tying runner trying to steal second.

Annie, Kenia and Aydis were each on base all three times for Coldwell Banker, combining for seven of the team’s thirteen runs. Madison contributed with two hits, an RBI, and two runs scored. Left fielder Martina Watler made a very good catch on a high fly ball.

Aleigha scored three runs for Scotiabank, while showing off her outstanding base-running skills. Zhanna McDonald was on base all three times with two walks and a double.

Players of the Game:

Kenia Rostran (Coldwell Banker): Three hits, three runs scored, two RBI, and two clutch defensive plays in the last inning.
