Port Stanley News RSS Feed  Seniors Softball 2018 Season Opener

by Doug Harvey
2018 Season Opener

The first games of the 2018 Port Stanley Senior Softball season were held Wednesday, May 16th in mostly sunny skies with temperatures rising over the day to 22 degrees Celsius. It was great to see so many players come back again for another season, even though most seemed to have lost that edge that they had last year, hopefully that edge will return after playing a few more games.

In Game 1 Shedden got off to a early lead with a single in the first, and on a lucky streak extended that lead by five in the sixth. It wasn't until the ninth when the Sailors finally got on the scoreboard with a single to give the win of the first game of the season to Shedden with a score of Shedden 6 - Sailors 1.

In Game 2 Boxall got off to a early lead with two in the second, and added two more in the third, while the Maroons got on the scoreboard with two runs in the third. Boxall kept that 4-2 lead until the fifth and then extended that lead by another five runs, while the Maroons got another single. Boxall managed another single in the sixth to end the game with ten, while in the eighth the Maroons added another single to finish with four giving the win to Boxall with a score of Boxall 10 - Maroons 4

In Game 3 the Blues took the early lead with a single in the fourth, added another in the fifth to lead by two. Meanwhile the Pirates last years champs were still scoreless waiting for that lucky break that finally came in the seventh when they got on the scoreboard with two runs and tied the game. Their tie ended in the bottom of the seventh when the Blues added another single. By the eighth inning it seemed like the volume got turned up a couple of notches as the Pirates tied the game again, and in the ninth added three more to steal the win from the Blues with a final score of Pirates 6 - Blues 3
