Elkland Labour Day Durk Sherman Classic results

The Elkland Labour Day Durk Sherman Classic hosted 18 teams at the Elkland Softball Association complex in Pennsylvania this past long weekend.

Great times, great ball, excellent hosts and beautiful weather. More on that later, but here is some information on the results:

South Lebanon, PA, who had Josh Johnson from Circle Tap ISC team were the winners of the event. They went 5-0 and beat the Kars, ON Aces in the final 14-6.

Kars only lost two games in finishing second: one to South Lebanon in the undefeated game, then to them again in the final. Kars had Steve Price, Brad Porter and Cory Alkerton to pitch. They won four games along the way.

Probably the biggest surprise of the weekend were the Greenbush, ON Generals who finished third with a 4-2 record. Both losses were to Kars. They had Doug Hoffman to pitch.

The host ESA Thunderbellys ended in fourth place, getting beat out by Greenbush on Monday after defeating Shaggy Dog earlier in the day. ESA had regular pitchers Bill Sherman and Dan Cevette for Friday night, and added Paul Algar, Ty McKinney and Gregg Garrity to their line up later in the tourney.

The two teams that were beat out early Monday finished tied for fifth. Perennial champions Shaggy Dog from Erie, PA were not as stacked this year and lost to the host team. They had Marty Humphries throwing.

The Orleans, ON Rebels had a very good run, let on the slab by Ty Sebastian, Jamie Blakely, Andy Barber and Jeff Barber. They opened up with a loss against ESA but pulled off four straight wins before losing a heartbreaker in the seventh to Greenbush on Monday morning.

Other local teams competing were Fitzroy Harbour, ON West Carleton Electric who finished 2-2, losing to Knoxville/Ontario in the opener (Cody Price & Craig Hollingsworth), beating JA Transportation (local team) and Erie Lost Dogs (Bill Hillhouse) before losing to the Cortland, NY Bombers (Ryan Nichols & Sean Kelly). WC Electric had Doug Gillis from Michigan pitching along with Darren Featherstone and Paul Ceppi.

Carp, ON I4C Victory also finished 2-2. They beat Jersey Shore, PA Generals, lost to Shaggy Dog, beat Williamsport, PA Dick's Diner and lost to Orleans. Carp had the "owner" Neil Cooke throwing as well as Kyle Crawford.

More to follow, just give me some time to rest up......
