9U Cardinals start season with a 9-0 win
Creemore 9U had their first game and home opener this week.

The teams dedication to defence was on display right off the hop as they shut out the opposition.

Si Stephens and Adair McIntosh Shepley (left) teamed up for a great play at first to start things off. A pair of huge plays helped keep Wasaga off the score sheet.
With the bases loaded, short stop Easton Cross scooped up a hard ground ball and delivered a strike to teammate Everett Kaden at second for the third out. McIntosh-Shepley fumbled the ball but recovered and was able to put a tag on the runner for a close play at third.

The bats were flying as well. Led by Findlay Ross’ two massive hits (double and triple), the team put up 17 hits and scored nine runs over just four innings. Stephens crushed a big double to score a run and was perfect at the plate. As was Gage Kaden, Vaughn Veljacic, Easton Cross, and Christien Stoyanovich.

After starting off the season with a 9-0 win the team travels to Alliston next week. Next home game is June 13 vs Mansfield.
