In the opening match Friday night Revolution played a very tight game vs the Oakville Angels 03 squad, a real pitching duel and the score reflected just that as UTM prevailed 2-0. Saturday AM, the first game saw some good offensive at bats as they team defeated Mississauga North 10-1. The 3rd and final pool play game allowed UTM to play the Quebec Rebelles squad, and the final was UTM 7-0. With the 1st seed secured the playoff round started on Saturday evening… and in the opening round 2K2 stormed back from an early 3-0 deficit to defeat Waterloo Ghosts Black by a score of 13-3. Semi-final Sunday morning was a re-match of the Friday night game, and once again Revolution got a great pitching performance in a 7-0 victory. The gold medal final was also a rematch of a pool game as Mississauga North Tigers battled hard to get to the final match. A tight game until the 3rd inning, and in the end UTM won the game by a score of 8-1.
McKenna Kelly pitched 5 games, and allowed only 5-runs over the entire weekend. Mikaela Moore also did well on the rubber, pitching 8 innings of shut-out ball. The offense was sparked with some key extra base hits from Jessie O’Donnell and Tanis Drover, but really from top to bottom every person in the line-up contributed with some timely at bats, etc. Makenna Hill had an AB, in which she fouled off 10 straight pitches.
