Storm in first place at national championship

Surrey softball team has three wins in four games in Charlottetown

Three wins in four starts has the Surrey Storm ‘95 atop the Black Pool at the Canadian Under-18 Women’s softball championship in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

The Storm topped the Quebec Rebelles 5-2 Monday morning. Tori Belton pitched all seven innings, giving up one earned run on seven hits, while striking out five batters.

Left fielder Chelsea Jenner was the top batter with three hits, while pinch-hitter Emma Entzminger drove in a pair of runs.

All three Storm players, along with Lindsey Ogilvie, were in Sherbrooke, Quebec last weekend, winning a gold medal while playing for Team BC at the Canada Summer Games.

The Storm needed just five innings to stop the host PEI Bandits 9-0. Six runs in the third inning lifted Surrey to a 7-0 lead, and two more runs in the top of the fifth brought the game to an end.

Ogilvie and Courtney Patterson shared the pitching duties, each allowing a pair of hits while combining for five strikeouts.

Entzminger led the offender with three hits, three RBIs and two runs scored. Jenner, Taylor Miller and Victoria Singh had two hits each.

The Storm ran their record to a perfect 3-0 (won-lost) record Tuesday with a 7-0 win over the Brampton Blazers.

The River City Hornets handed the Storm their first loss of the tournament, rocking three Surrey pitchers for 11 hits in a 10-6 victory yesterday (Wednesday).

The Hornets scored in five of their six at-bats, taking a 3-1 lead after one inning and staying in front the rest of the way.

Jenner and Anna Battison had two hits each for the 3-1 (won-lost) Storm, who will play their final two round robin games today against the Saskatoon Selects (2-1) and the Mississauga Northern Tigers (2-2).

The top four teams from each of the Red and Black pools will advance to the weekend’s double-knockout playoff.

The first-and second-place teams start with two lives, the third- and fourth-place teams begin play with one.
