MONTREAL – The Charlottetown Mariners completed round-robin play in the Softball Canada national junior women’s fastpitch championship with a 1-5 (won-lost) record.
The P.E.I. representative dropped both games in the under-21 tournament on Friday – 10-3 to the Quebec Rebelles Langlois and 5-4 to Ontario’s Peterborough Thunder (2-3).
Langlois 10 Mariners 3
A five-run second inning gave Quebec a comfortable 6-1 lead, and they never looked back.
The game was called after six innings due to the seven-run mercy rule on Friday morning.
Annie Renaud went the distance for Quebec, allowing three hits, four walks and striking out seven. Hilary Pineau also fired a complete game for the Mariners. Pineau gave up 10 hits, four walks and she fanned two.
Tori Kinney, Haley Pound and Riley Koughan recorded hits for the Mariners.
Thunder 5 Mariners 4
The Thunder jumped out to a 4-0 lead after two complete innings, but a comeback attempt by the Mariners fell just short.
Priscilla Curran, who granted four runs (two earned) on four hits and one walk in two innings, took the pitching loss. Kate Cashin allowed one run and two hits over four innings of work.
Offensively, Cashin and Pineau each had 2-for-4 summaries, including a run scored, to lead the Mariners, who outhit the Thunder 9-6.
