Scarborough Wolverines capture Junior Men’s ch’shipBY PAT HEALEY
The Scarborough Wolverines scored three times in the top of the sixth inning and held off a hard charging Kelly’s Pub Canadians to capture the 2007 Causeway Bay Softball Canada Junior men’s fast pitch championship here Sunday.
The Wolverines scored three after the Canadians scored two in the bottom of the fifth to take a 2-1 lead.
NL missed an opportunity to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth when Ken Gosse hit a fly ball, that was caught with one out. Matt Hill on third stayed put and didn’t tag up.
Andrew Putham (2-3, run scored), Rob Bennett (1-3, run scored, RBI), and Rob Clayton (2-3, runs cored) powered the offense.
Brad Ezekiel (2-3, run scored) Ryan Boland (1-2, runs cored) and pinch hitter Shane O’Brien (1-1, rbi double) led NL.
"I faced these guys last year and they had my number," Putham said. "For this game, I just wanted to get ahead of them."
Top player for the championship rond, Brandon Horn, 1-for-3 in the contest, was happy with the game.
"I just wanted to get on base and allow my teammates to cash me in,"I just tried to get the bat on the ball.
Scarborough coach Ryan Freedman was very excited with the result, having lost twice earlier to the NL team.
"It was the closest final I have ever been in," he said.
Sean Cleary suffered the loss, going the distance striking out 11.
In the semifinal Sunday morning, Matt Leahy threw six innings of one hit ball, fanning eight and walking one batter and Cam Haulk drove in two runs as the Scarborough Wolverines advanced to the championship game with a 4-0 win over Elmira Advance Millwright.
The Wolverines win sets up a third meeting between Scarborough and Kelly’s Pub Canadians of Newfoundland and Labrador, last year’s champions. The other two meetings were wins, 7-3 and 6-3 by the NL squad. Saturday they beat Scarborough 6-3 in extra innings to advance straight to the final.
Brandon Horn (1-3, run scored, RBI), Nick Dambrosio (2-3, RBI) and Rob Bennett (1-3, run scored) led the attack.
Ben Tee (1-2) had Elmira’s lone hit
Andrew Putnam pitched an inning of no hit ball, striking out two in relief. Dan Martin went six innings allowing four runs on eight hits walking one and fanning three.
Elmira finishes third place, bronze medal, good considering they were 3-3 mid week and looked to be in trouble.
