The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

The Swift Cur­rent Pee Wee Girls Sonic soft­ball team, host team for the 2018 Saskatchew­an Soft­ball Pee Wee C Pro­vin­cial Cham­pi­onships, were at the 18-team Moose Jaw Ice U14B tour­na­ment this week­end.

The Sonic fin­ished the tour­na­ment with three wins and one loss, los­ing in the semi-fi­nal to the South­east Hawks.

The Sonic started the tour­na­ment on Friday night against one of the host teams from Moose Jaw, the Ice. The bats were hot for the Sonic as they came away with a 19-2 win to open the tour­na­ment.

Saturday morn­ing, the Sonic took on the Mack­lin Lak­ers, and with some strong pitch­ing, stingy de­fence, and a bal­anced of­fen­sive at­tack, beat the Lak­ers 14-1.

On Sun­day morn­ing, in a bat­tle for first place in Pool A and a spot in the semi-fi­nal, the Sonic played the Moose Jaw Twis­ters. The game was tight un­til the fourth in­ning when the Sonic scored six runs to take a 10-3 lead and ad­vance to the semi­fi­nal.

In the semi-fi­nal on Sun­day af­ter­noon, it was a bat­tle be­tween two un­de­feated teams. The game was a back and forth af­fair, with both the Sonic and the South­east Hawks hold­ing the lead through­out the game. It took a full seven in­nings to de­cide a win­ner and the Hawks came out on top with a 13-10 vic­tory.

The Sonic’s next ac­tion is July 3 when they travel to Kin­der­s­ley to play two games, one against Leader and one against Kin­der­s­ley.

The Sonic then wel­come 11 teams to Swift Cur­rent for the Pee Wee C Pro­vin­cial Cham­pi­onships July 6-8 at the City Re­cre­ation Com­plex.
