Quyon wins 6-1 over WC Electric

The Quyon Combat Flyers won 6-1 over West Carleton Electric in GOFL play on Thursday night on the Quebec side.

Joran Graham had the win for Quyon while Steve Cavanagh took the loss for West Carleton.

Fitzroy got on the board in the first inning. Andy Barber walked with one out, took second on a wild pitch and third on a passed ball, scoring on Neil Murphy's RBI single.

Quyon responded right away with two in the bottom of the first frame. Dennis McCleary reached base on an error, took second on a passed ball and scored on Matt Greer's RBI double. Greer then took third on a passed ball. After a walk to Joran Graham put runners on the corners, Nick Armitage's fly to right would have scored Greer on the sac fly, but the ball was dropped as the fielder lost the ball in the sun. Cavanagh was able to get out of the inning without further damage to make the score 2-1 for the home team.

The fourth inning broke things open for the Flyers. With one out, Tim Craig reached on a bunt single and took second on a passed ball. Jordan Kearns walked, but was put out a fielder's choice at second to put Dennis McCleary on first and Craig on third. Curtis Daley's off hand drive to right scored Craig. Then Matt Greer's three run bomb made the game 6-1.

Graham settled in and retired the next nine out of ten batters to finish the game.

For his hot night at the plate and outstanding game defensively at shortstop, Matt Greer earns the Caveman's Choice as player of the game.
