Wolves girls slo-pitch season team starts off with two games

The North Star Wolves girls slo-pitch season is off to an 0-2 start but the team is OK with how they played.

The Wolves were part of a day-long event last Friday at Co-An Park in McGregor where several teams got their season started using the multiple diamonds at the park. The Wolves and Villanova Wildcats faced each other and Villanova took an 8-1 lead in the game only to have North Star claw back and make it 8-7.

The Wildcats would finish the game with a 9-7 win.

In the second game of the day for North Star, the Wolves lost 7-3 to Kingsville with the latter getting a three-run home run late in the game to break the game open.

Senior players Lily Mulder and Jerzie Rego were happy with how the Wolves played, despite the final scores.

“We hit well,” said Mulder.

Mulder said their bats were alive and she was encouraged by what she saw on the field. Rego added they have a good team and will likely have a good team again next year given the amount of younger players on it.

Mulder estimated the amount of players at tryouts was about 50, the most they have had in several years dating back to the program’s days at General Amherst High School.

“It was nice to see people come out,” said Rego.

The windy conditions also wreaked havoc with the Wolves, they indicated.

“The wind was not doing us any favours,” said Rego.

The Wolves hosted the Sandwich Sabres Tuesday at Malden Centre Park after this issue of the River Town Times went to press. They return to the same field to play Belle River Thursday at 3:30 p.m. before travelling to Essex May 7 for a 3:30 p.m. game.

Remaining regular season games are in Leamington May 9 to battle Cardinal Carter and the Wolves conclude the season at home May 14 against the Leamington Lions. Those games are also at 3:30 p.m.
