Two wins on opening day 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 hone 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 drive in a pair of runs.

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.
