Cayman’s youth have been actively swinging for the
fences since last month.
As this month’s games show, almost all of them have
put out noteworthy performances at the Field of Dreams facility.
Jacob Stanuel-Taitte hit two home runs and Jered
Holmes added another as Grand Old House outscored Conyers 17-8 in a recent Pony
Lauren Brown, George Power and D’Vonte Joseph added
clutch RBI hits for Grand Old House, who overcame an early 7-4 deficit with
seven runs in the second inning and six in the third.
Inaki Watler hit a grand-slam in the top of the
third inning as Esso overcame a three-run deficit to beat Deloitte 9-7 for
their first Pony League win of the season. Tyler Ebanks also homered for Esso,
who scored six runs in the top of the third to take the lead for good.
Will Roberts, Max Hydes and Zac Franklin all homered
and Global Captive Management overcame a six-run deficit to defeat PricewaterhouseCoopers
14-9 in a Pony League game. Ali and Kai Robinson were GCM’s defensive players
of the game.
Cayman Growers scored the game’s only run in the
first inning to defeat Coldwell Banker 1-0 in other Pony League action. This
was a low-scoring game characterized by tough defense played by both teams.
Ryan Lloyd, Matthew Dube, Scott Lewis and Alex Ruffer all made impressive
fielding plays for Coldwell.
Connor Woods hit two doubles and drove in four runs
as Kennedy Gallery remained unbeaten in Double-A play in defeating Home Gas
12-4. Dominic Pouchie had a bases-clearing double and later made an unassisted
double play at third base for Kennedy Gallery (4-0), while Javier
Powery-Monterroso made an unbelievable fly ball catch.
Paint Pros scored seven runs in the third inning to
erase a 6-0 deficit en route to a 14-9 win over Subway last Saturday. Paint
Pros (3-1) scored seven runs in two innings to remain in second place in the
Double-A Division ahead of 1-3 Subway (1-3).
The positive vibes would be short-lived for Paint
pros however. David Lee gave up one run over two innings and added an RBI
triple to ignite a seven-run second-inning rally as Kennedy Gallery overpowered
Paint Pros 9-2. Kennedy Gallery’s big inning broke a 2-2 tie and featured RBI
hits by Josiah Derksen, Krystal Arch and Connor Woods.
Meanwhile Subway would rebound as Finnegan Huffington
drove in two runs to break a third-inning tie and starter James Green surrendered
one run over four innings as Subway beat Home Gas 11-4 for its first win.
Amber Evans pitched a great game and smacked two
home runs, including a grand slam, to lead WestTel to a season-opening 27-9
victory over Burger King in girls softball action.
Elizabeth Westin did a great job at catcher and also
batted home two runs for WestTel, who scored nine runs in the first inning, 10
in the second and eight in the third. Kristi Welds and Breanna Welds each homered
for Burger King in their eight-run second inning.
In other action, Kirk Group scored early and often,
including a six-run final inning, as it defeated Arch Automotive 13-1 in both
teams’ girls softball opener.
