23 GODERICH SIGNAL STAR WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12, 2019 Two nights later, the locals were on the diamond again as they travelled to Sebringvil­le for an 8:30 p.m. start. The Seahawks were without four regulars in the line up for this one meaning a lot of playing time for each player, and this group didn’t disappoint jumping out to an early 3-1 lead. Seahawk starter, Payton Swan, showed a little rust early in this one, but nicely settled in after the first to not allow another Sting hit after the first inning. Grace Taylor, and Emily Hartin were electrifyi­ng at the top of the Seahawk batting order scoring four runs each in the game. Seahawk U14 call up, Caleigh Ditner, had a stellar game contributi­ng two hits, two RBI’s, and a solid inning of work on the mound to close out the game for the Seahawks. The Surveyors will practice early next week prior to a mid week H.P.F.L. road test in Dorchester versus a Diamondbac­ks club that are much better than their early record shows. The Seahawks will then compete in the Exeter Extreme Tournament over the Father’s Day weekend. had the bases loaded with only one out, but couldn’t push any more across. The Seahawks kept plugging away, but ultimately couldn’t quite overcome this deficit. ST. MARY’S 8 VS. SEAHAWKS 3 Payton Swan was back on the hill versus their “stone town” opponents. Like Harrison in the earlier contest, Swan deserved a better fate in this one giving up eight runs with only two being earned. Down 3-0 early, the Seahawks scored a pair when Emily Hartin and Jamie Archambaul­t were plated by a Zoe Milne RBI single. Once again, Goderich didn’t help them selves as they made too many mistakes versus another quality opponent. This game took an unsportsma­nlike turn late in the game when Janelle Ditner was shoved to the ground on two consecutiv­e plays by the St. Mary’s first baseman, which sparked some complaints (and verbal chatter) by the Goderich bench staff. With their pool play complete, the Seahawks managed to grab the fourth (and final) semi final berth setting up a Sunday morning re-match with the top seeded St. Mary’s. SEAHAWKS 7 VS. ST. MARY’S 3 The Seahawks opened the scoring when Bella Moore crossed the plate. St. Mary’s tied the game immediatel­y with an unearned run off of Alexa Harrison. After the Seahawks failed to take advantage of a bases loaded situation, Harrison sandwiched three strikeouts around two runs as the Culbert Crew found themselves down 3-1. In the top half of the third, Kate Johnston delivered a two run single to tie the game. Harrison battled hard the rest of the way not allowing another St. Mary’s run to score. In the fourth, Janelle Ditner, Ava Fitzgerald, Katie Ridsdale, and Grace Taylor all touched home plate courtesy of RBI’s from Jamie and Abby Archambaul­t sending the Seahawks to the Championsh­ip game versus Listowel. LISTOWEL 9 VS. SEAHAWKS 4 The final saw Grace Taylor open the scoring on a Katie Ridsdale RBI single. Ridsdale was then delivered home courtesy of a Jaimy Langille hit giving the Seahawks an early 2-0 lead. However, Listowel used their bats to counter with four of their own off starter Payton Swan. Zoe Milne drove home both Emily Har- tin and Janelle Ditner to square the affair, but Listowel re-gained their two run cushion at 6-4 in the bottom half of the second. This game stayed the same for the next few innings as the locals missed a few opportunit­ies to tie the game up once again. In the last of the fifth, Goderich finally showed a couple of cracks in their armour giving up three runs, which they could never quite recover from versus a well-coached solid Listowel ball club. SEAHAWKS 21 VS. INGERSOLL 6 On Tuesday, June 4 the Seahawks were back in Huron Perth Fastball action at John O’Keefe Field hosting the Ironbirds from Ingersoll. Alexa Harrison started for Goderich throwing two hit ball over her five innings of work as the Seahawks routed the visitors handily. The Culbert Crew belted out 17 hits in this contest with notable performanc­es going to Jamie Archambaul­t (three-for-three). Abby Archambaul­t, and Janelle Ditner both delivered three RBI’s apiece to help their team in this game.
