Herricanes blow past Juniors

The next generation received an emphatic lesson from the veterans last night.
Caylee Woolsey had four RBIs in helping the Fort Frances Herricanes to a 27-5 romp over the Fort Frances Juniors in Rainy River District Women’s Fastball League action last night.

With three walks also to her credit, Woolsey reached base in all six of her plate appearances—and came within a home run of hitting for the cycle.
The Herricanes (10-1-1) scored five runs in the third inning, then exploded for 15 more in the fourth, to pull away from the Juniors (0-10).
Lauren Vold went 2-for-2 with an RBI for the Juniors.
McKenna Begin was 2-for-4 while allowing only one run on two hits in two innings of mop-up duty—recording her first career strikeout in her mound debut.
Charity McMahon pitched the first three innings to earn the win, giving up two runs on five hits while walking two and striking out three.
Sara Jackson took the loss for the Juniors, surrendering 11 runs on six hits while walking eight and fanning two.
The win moved the Herricanes further ahead of second-place Northwest Bay (9-1), whose game last night against Sabaskong Tebinaak was postponed.
In other league action last night, the Big Island Wildcats hammered the host Sabaskong Cougars 30-9 while the Redgut Babes and host Manitou Blaze battled to a 13-13 tie.
No score was reported from the game between the Big Grassy Lynx and visiting Couchiching Raiders.
League action resumes tomorrow with the Herricanes hosting the Cougars and the Juniors in Redgut to face the Babes.
Couchiching hosts Sabaskong Tebinaak, Big Grassy visits Big Island, and Northwest Bay is home to Manitou.
All games start at 7 p.m.
