At Ike Noble Field in Canton on Saturday, Canton 26 Salmon River 1
Canton hosted the Salmon River Shamrocks on Saturday morning for a brunch start time. The Bears gave up one run in the first inning because of a walk and an error but then went on to score 26 unanswered runs off 16 hits to down the Shamrocks 26-1.
Junior Courtney Peters made her first start in the circle for the Bears and came away with a six strikeout, two-walk No Hitter. “Courtney threw great today and pounded the strike zone all game. She was very impressive in her first start of the season. Coach Mike Wentworth stated, “offensively, we pounded the ball for the second day in a row by collecting 16 hits as a team”. The big blow of the game came in the second inning when Hadley Alguire hit a Grand Slam over the fence. “She has peppered that fence for the last two years. I am glad she finally ate her spinach and got one over”, stated Wentworth.
Sydnee Fracis (3-5), Cate DeCoteau (2-3), Lucy DeCoteau (2-2), Ava Hoy (2-2) and Courtney Peters (2-2 ) all had big days at the plate.
Canton will hit the road again on Monday when they travel to Malone to face the Franklin Academy Huskies. First pitch is scheduled for 4:30.
