The St. Clair College Women’s Softball team opened with a narrow 5-4 victory over Humber College (Etobicoke) at the OCAA Provincial Championship Tournament Friday afternoon in Kitchener but fell 8-4 to Durham College (Oshawa) in their next game. The Saints now face Fanshawe College (London) Saturday morning at 11:00am in an elimination game but a win would advance them to the Gold Medal final. St. Clair has assured themselves of no less than a bronze medal in the double-knockout format as one of the final three remaining teams in contention.
In their opening win the Saints scored 4 runs in the 3rd inning to take a 4-2 lead over Humber. Humber tied the game 4-4 in the 4th inning but St. Clair responded with a single in the bottom half and were able to hang on for the victory. Allison Telfer (Windsor, ON/FJ Brennan) collected the win on the mound for St. Clair pitching the final 3 innings in relief holding Humber scoreless while spreading out 4 hits. Megan Lumley (Windsor, ON/Holy Names) was named St. Clair’s Player of the Game with a pair of singles to go with an RBI and a run scored.
St. Clair let a 4-0 lead slip away in the 5th inning of their second game allowing Durham to score 4 runs and eventually 4 more runs in the 7th inning. The Saints surrendered 4 fielding errors which resulted in 4 Durham unearned runs to score. Jenna Pierce (London) was named St. Clair’s Player of the Game going 3 for 3 at the plate including a double and two singles.
