West Carleton named "co-champions" at rain-shortened Masters Provincials

West Carleton Electric Masters 40+ team, made up of a core group of players from the WC team in the Greater Ottawa Fastball League plus some other GOFL "old timers", had a good showing at the Ontario Amateur Softball Association provincials in Cambridge.

The team defeated the Petersburg As on Saturday morning by a score of 4-0. Corey Costello had the win for WC, throwing a one-hitter with ten strikeouts. Mike Crawford threw for the As.

The second game of the day saw West Carleton beat the Waterdown Hammer 4-3. Martin Mauviel, a pick up from the Kitchener Fastball League had the win for the Electric, with Costello getting the save. Neil McDonald and Doug Hoffman threw for the Hammer. Mike Cavanagh played some fantastic defense for the Trics in this one.

The final game of Saturday had West Carleton narrowly losing 4-3 to the Wellington Sox. Costello took the loss, while Mel Ross earned the win. This game had an exciting end with the Sox up 4-1 in the seventh. After key hits from Jamey Mick and Jon Daley, Trevor Barton doubled to make it 4-3. With two out Costello came to bat and mashed a ball about 290 feet - unfortunately, the fences were 300 feet at the complex and the centrefielder caught the ball to end the game.

With a 2-1 record, the Electric were scheduled for a fourth round robin game against St. Thomas on Sunday morning, followed by playoffs. However, a major storm came through the area and the remainder of the event was cancelled. The tournament director named both West Carleton and Wellington (each two wins, one loss) as co-champions of the Masters A title.
