Scotiabank homerun hitters: Shay and Carmella

Scotiabank Team

Kirk Freeport Team

Scotiabank 12, Kirk Freeport 6

The CI Little League Girls Softball division continued on Wednesday, August 12th, as first place Scotiabank featured solid pitching, good defense and timely hitting to defeat Kirk Freeport, 12-6.

Scotiabank scored five runs in each of the first two innings, and cruised to victory after that. The big hits came in the second inning as Shay Windsor led off with an inside-the-park homer deep to right centre. After Zhanna McDonald, Calissa Ylagan and Clara Ramos all reached base, Carmella Ylagan brought them all home with a grand slam to the fence in left centre, resulting in great enthusiasm on the Scotiabank bench.

Shay and Calissa each scored three runs for the victors, while Zhanna crossed the plate twice. Hannah Lawrence chimed in with two singles in her two at-bats. Clara pitched the first three innings, limiting Kirk Freeport to just four runs, while striking out three. She was aided by a good catch on a high pop-up by second baseman Rio Windsor, who also had a solid RBI single to left field. Aleigha General made a fine play at third, fielding a grounder and firing a perfect throw home to put out a runner who was trying to score. Carmella pitched the last inning, striking out a batter, and Scotiabank ended the game by tagging out a runner at third base.

Demae Lee had a walk and a two-run single to lead the Kirk Freeport offense. She also pitched quite well and made a great stop on a hard grounder up the middle, but a few costly errors by the fielders hurt her statistics. Sofia Watler did well pitching during the third inning, and she made a fine catch at third base earlier in the game. Kirk Freeport missed the stalwart defense and hitting from talented first baseman Krystal Morales-Ebanks, who couldn’t play due to a shoulder injury.

Players of the Game:

Carmella Ylagan (Scotiabank): Grand slam homer, four RBI, and solid pitching and defense.

Shay Windsor (Scotiabank): Home run and two singles, three runs scored.

Saturday night’s game between Scotiabank and Coldwell Banker was postponed due to wet fields. It has been rescheduled for Tuesday evening.

The girls have one more week of regular season games remaining, followed by a tournament during the last week of the month.
