Baseball season ends at North Star High School

Baseball season is over at North Star High School.


The boys team saw its season conclude last Thursday afternoon at the Libro Centre in the WECSSAA Tier 2 semi-final. The Brennan Cardinals came to town and beat the Wolves 9-3.


The semi-final game was originally to be played Wednesday afternoon, but was pushed back 24 hours due to rain that had passed through the area. North Star had to battle both injuries and suspensions heading into the semi-final game.


North Star had defeated Brennan 6-2 in the season opener April 29, a game that was also played out at the Libro Centre.


The Wolves did win one game last week, that being their quarterfinal match-up last Wednesday afternoon against the Kennedy Clippers. Once again on their home diamond, the Wolves knocked off the Clippers 9-5.


“I think we started off a tad bit slow but we worked our way into it,” said North Star’s Graham Evans after last Wednesday’s quarterfinal game.


The Wolves’ pitching started off well against the Clippers and “the bats were rolling” as the game went along.


Evans struck out six in the winning effort against Kennedy.


Assistant coach Ethan Hill said they started slow against the Clippers and got down early.


“Once again, the guys were resilient and came back,” said Hill.


The girls slo-pitch team was also in playoff action last week with a tournament at Co-An Park in McGregor. The Wolves knocked off Lajeunesse in their first game last Tuesday morning as they came away with a 10-1 victory. After that, the Wolves lost two straight games, first losing a 9-3 decision to the Sandwich Sabres later last Tuesday morning.


The final game for North Star was an 11-9 loss to the Kingsville Cavaliers last Tuesday afternoon.
