EAST HANTS: The LWF Warriors used a five-plus run inning to break open a close contest and didn’t look back as they opened the U-15 A Tier 2 provincials with a victory on Sept. 1.
LWF had got out to a 2-0 lead before the host East Hants Nationals clawed back in a long inning to make it 2-2, although they failed to add more as the pitching and defence shut things down.
East Hants stranded two runners in what could have been a bigger inning and given them the lead.
That allowed LWF an opportunity a couple innings later, and they didn’t miss.
The Warriors hit and hit and used a few walks to their advantage as they scored five runs to make it 7-2.
LWF would add four more runs to make it an 11-4 final score and a winning start to the provincials for the Fall River/Windsor Junction based team.
