At the annual Harbour Days game in Fitzroy Harbour, West Carleton Electric defeated an undermanned Stittsville 56ers squad 9-2 in six innings in front of a nice sized crowd.

Steve Cavanagh had the win, while Darren Featherstone took the loss.

The 56ers responded with two runs in the top of the third. With one out, John Craig hit his second single of  the game. Dan Bradley walked. Both runners advanced 60ft on a wild pitch. Scott Parsons double scored both to put the visitors up 2-1.

The lead was short-lived as Fitzroy tied it up. Charlie Ross singled but was put out on Andy Barber's fielder's choice. A ground out advanced Barber to second, and Derek Barber's single tied things at 2-2.

West Carleton made it 4-2 in the bottom of the fifth. Jason Armstrong singled, then scored on Andy Barber's two run homer.

The game ended when WC Electric scored five in the sixth inning. Troy Wilson lead off with a single to celebrate his birthday and moved to third on Jeff Barber's single. Barber took second uncontestedly, and both Wilson and Barber scored on Jeff Cavanagh's pinch hit two run single.After a line drive out to short, a ground ball advanced Cavanagh to second. Andy Barber walked, and misplayed grounder put Jon Daley on and scored Jeff Cavanagh. Derek Barber's two run single then ended the game at 9-2.\

For his strong night at the plate, Andy Barber receives the Caveman's Choice award for player of the game.

Thanks to John Craig and the 56ers for making the trip to Fitzroy Harbour despite being short players.
