Two wins for the Wolves' slo-pitch team, playoffs on deck


Girls North Star Wolves player makes pitch

The North Star Wolves girls slo-pitch team won a pair of games last week and needed to keep the momentum going to advance into the playoffs.


The Wolves hosted the Leamington Lions at Malden Centre Park last Tuesday afternoon and won 5-2. The girls bounced back quickly after losing their previous game 20-5 against the Sandwich Sabres and said their communication was improved against Leamington.


“I think we were definitely talking better out there,” said Morgan Kelly.


The communication wasn’t as strong against Sandwich and it cost the Wolves, Kelly added.


“We were better at working as a team today,” said Dallas Goyeau.


Kelly added their overall performance was better against Leamington, noting every bad play they made against Sandwich rubbed off on other players. They learned from the Sandwich game and were able to play better against the Lions.


The Wolves would travel to Leamington Thursday afternoon, but this time went up against the Cardinal Carter Cougars in what the team called their “biggest adversary of the season” in a social media post. The Wolves came home with a 12-4 victory.


Camryn Carmack had four strikeouts and Lily Mulder walked four times and scored four times against Cardinal Carter.


Madison Drouillard connected on a grand slam home run as part of what North Star said was a six-run inning that helped put them over the top. Other RBI’s against Cardinal Carter came from Tyler Lamarche, Ashley Mongeau, Ava Mayrand, Carmack, and Molly Ellis. Hitting doubles were Mongeau and Ellis, while Lamarche and Ireland Carter.North Star still had more work to do to make it into the playoffs. The Wolves went up against the St. Anne Saints Tuesday afternoon, after this issue of the River Town Times went to press. The game was at Co-An Park in McGregor and the winner advanced into the WECSSAA girls slo-pitch playoffs.
