Surge Mosquitoes post undefeated weekend
The Seaway Surge mosquito team had a great weekend, adding three wins and one tie to their exhibition record. The highlight game came against the Quinte Royals on their turf, just outside of Belleville.
Backed up by some great defence, Wesley Finner (Kemptville) threw four scoreless innings to start the game. Rhett McLean (Kemptville) then closed it out, holding the Royals to one run in the final two innings. The Surge bats were alive, driving in 8 total runs. Clean-up hitter Justin Van Luit (Prescott) hit a pair of towering triples to lead the charge in the 8-1 win.
The Seaway Surge travelled to Ottawa this past Saturday and faced a very tough South Ottawa squad. In the first game, pitchers Thomas Dishaw (Prescott), Wyatt Zimmer (Cornwall), and Josh Broad (Morrisburg) each pitched two strong innings and limited the Ottawa squad to 2 runs in a 14-2 victory. In the second game, South Ottawa jumped out to an early lead with 4 runs in the top of the first. The Surge cut the lead to two off of Ethan Marion’s (Kemptville) two run homer, his sixth of the season. Despite some good hitting from Alex Tym (Kemptville) and Colin Van Hoof (Williamsburg) each with two base hits, South Ottawa’s pitching was too strong on the day as their staff struck out 14 batters over 6 innings, in an 8-2 victory. The Peewee team travels to Rochester this weekend to participate in the NY State Gold Prospects tournament.
