West Carleton wins Canada Day game over Quyon

West Carleton Electric won the annual Canada Day match up in Quyon over the Flyers on Friday night by a score of 7-1.

Andy Barber had the pitching win, allowing only four hits and striking out 14. Trevor Lahey had the loss with relief from Matt Greer.

Fitzroy scored two in the first inning. With two outs, Jeff Barber reached on an error and was brought home on a moon shot home run from Chris Costello that hit the lights in left centre field.

Quyon responded with a run in the bottom of the inning. Dave Hobbs lead off with a single, stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch. Hobbs scored on Steve McCord's single.

West Carleton put another two on the board in the fourth. Jeff Barber and Costello hit back to back singles. When Jeff Cavanagh reached on an error, Barber scored. Costello was brought in on Jon Daley's RBI single.

The Electric padded their lead in the sixth. Matt MacKay started things with a single. After a strikeout and a hard liner caught in centrefield, Jeff Barber singled again, as did Costello who drove in MacKay. After Jeff Cavanagh walked, Daley drove in Barber and Costello with a single to make it 7-1.

Quyon got two men aboard in the bottom of the sixth on walks to Greer and Nick Armitage, but Barber got out of the jam with a strikeout.

Just as the bottom of the seventh was wrapping up, the annual Quyon fireworks display began.
