MONTREAL – P.E.I. recorded its first win in the Softball Canada under-14 girls’ jamboree here in Thursday night’s late game.
P.E.I. posted an 11-4 win over Nova Scotia, which went into the game with a 2-0 (won-lost).
“Our girls came out with confidence and aggression the way they have played all year, and the result showed,” said P.E.I. coach Chris Halliwell. “Everyone contributed in the game, our defence was great and we had key hits through out the game from Hannah Annear, Kaelyn White, Lila Mitchell, Lexi MacInnis, Allee Ryan, Kassie Oliver and Sarah Murphy.”
Catcher Lexy Mooney reached base and scored on all four trips to the plate, and was named P.E.I.’s player of the game.
