SEAHAWKS 5 Bella Moore had a solid game at the plate in this one going two-fortwo. Ava Fitzgerald also contribute­d at the plate with a hit, and a walk. Alexa Harrison was very good on the mound for the locals as she, and her Listowel counterpar­t locked into a good duel through the first three innings. The bottom half of the fourth saw the Seahawks’ wheels fall off as they made a couple of errors contributi­ng to a Listowel six-run (four unearned) inning. Goderich answered with a run in the top of the fifth (SEE A23) and Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has charged a 32-year-old from Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh in connection with a Break, Enter and Theft that took place in Clinton this past May.

SUBMITTED BY DAN RIDSDALE CENTRAL HURON, ON The Culbert Surveying Girls Fastball Club have had an extremely busy schedule this past week, and a half as they sandwiched the Mitchell FastballFe­st Tournament in between four H.P.F.L. regular season games. SEAHAWKS 12 VS. INNERKIP 2 May 31, the Lady Seahawks opened the tournament with a 12-2 mercy victory over the Innerkip Jr. Eagles behind a solid team effort. Goderich starter, Payton Swan, was impressive in this one fanning eight, scattering four hits, and walking none. Goderich countered the only two runs by Innerkip in the bottom of the first as Grace Taylor, Katie Ridsdale, and Zoe Milne all crossed the plate. The big blow in this game came in the bottom of the third with none out, and the bases loaded as Kate Johnston absolutely crushed a grand slam to deep left centre field extending the lead to 11-2. The Saturday games saw the Seahawks squander two excellent pitching performanc­es by Alexa Harrison and Payton Swan as the usually sure handed Seahawks committed an unpreceden­ted nine errors over the two ball games that When you’re under the influence of drugs you may make some poor decisions, as was the case this past weekend for a 20-year-old from Goderich.
