Quyon wins 6-1 over WC Electric to move on to semis

A nice crowd was on had to see the Quyon COMBAT Flyers defeat West Carleton Electric 6-1 in GOFL playoffs on Monday night in an error-free ball game in Fitzroy, as the Flyers moved on to the semi-final round with a two games to none sweep. This means that all four top GOFL seeds advance.

Drew Hathway had the win, throwing a three hitter, while Steve Cavanagh took the loss with relief from Jeff Barber.

Quyon took the lead in the top of the second. Nick Armitage doubled with one out and scored on Steve McCord's RBI single.

In the fourth, Matt Greer led off for Quyon with a solo homer. Then Armitage singled and scored on another McCord RBI single to put the Flyers up 3-0.

In the top of the fifth, Cavanagh was removed for Jeff Barber to come in and pitch.

Another run in the sixth made it 4-0 for Quyon. Hathway singled to lead off, moved to second on Armitage's sac bunt and scored on yet another McCord RBI single.

For the first five innings, Hathway had a perfect game going. WC Electric finally got some baserunners in the bottom of the sixth. Jon Daley doubled with one out. Dave Bahm came in to pinch hit and singled to shallow left. Daley attempted to score, but a throw from Tim Craig was on the money for the out at home. Andy Barber then tripled, scoring Jason Armstrong who had re-entered to run for Bahm.

Quyon padded their lead in the seventh. Craig reached on a bunt single with one out, took second on a wild pitch and moved to third on a sac bunt by Troy Cote. After a Matt Greer walk, Craig scored on a Hathway single. Greer then scored on a single by Armitage to cap the scoring at 6-1.

When the Electric couldn't respond in the bottom of seven, Quyon advanced to the semi-finals.

The GOFL semi-finals will see Quyon face Carp I4C Victory and Kars Aces against Stittsville 56ers. Quyon and Carp will get things going right away with a game on Tuesday night (Aug 24) in Quyon at 7:30. Games in the Kars/Stittsville series are to be determined.
