Fastball Mountaineers put scare into league leading Saints


St. Clair Saints may remain unbeaten in women’s fastball but Mohawk Mountaineers hinted they are beatable. Mohawk fell 2-1 to the Windsor college on Tuesday, but the Saints needed a come-from-behind extra inning effort to pick up their seventh win against no losses in Ontario Colleges Athletic Association play.

Mohawk’s record dropped to 1-3 and leaves them in fifth place. Mohawk, Seneca, Canadore, and Cambrian all have two points from one win but Mohawk and Seneca have played four games each compared to Canadore’s five and Cambrian’s seven.

Mohawk jumped infront 1-0 in the second inning as Jessica Lachance (Hamilton) singled, stole second base and then swiped third, before Katey Trevaskis (Ancaster) singled her home. Windsor finally tied the game with an unearned run in the sixth inning. The Saints then won it in the eighth frame.

It was a tough loss for Jenny Koschanow (Dundas) who pitched a complete game for Mohawk. Head coach Brian Weller, who said his team played very well in this game, noted the Mountaineers have some key head-to-head home games coming up, including two with Canadore College of North Bay, Friday at 7:00 pm and Saturday at 11:00 am at Mohawk Sport Park.
