Firefly Fusion wins provincial girl’s title

The provincial Bantam B girls fastball championship has a new home to hang in.

Red Deer’s Firefly Fusion won it all this past weekend, downing the Lloydminster Rebels 15-6 in the final game of the tournament, held this year in Strathmore.

Jordanna Krentz was solid on the mound, striking out eight Rebels batters in a complete game effort, while Cassidy LeMasurier smacked a triple and two singles in the title game.

Madison Lee chipped in with a triple and a double, while Megan Kirkland and Dominique Adams both added a pair of singles in the win.

“It’s amazing what can be accomplished by a group of willing athletes who want to learn,” said Fusion head coach Brian Holland. “They play the game with a passion and an intensity that make a coach very proud.”

The Fusion opened the round robin portion of the tournament with an 11-0 win over the Lougheed Bombers.

Madison Holland was on the mound in that one, throwing a one hitter while striking out 10.

Amy Lank picked up five RBI’s in the game, banging out a grand slam and a single to pace the Fusion.

Game two saw the Fusion grab another win, downing Lloydminster 13-8 in a championship game preview.

The Fusion followed that up with their only loss of the tournament, an 11-8 setback to the Medicine Hat Thunder.

Despite another good day at the plate, the girls committed eight errors, leading the Thunder win.

Red Deer bounced back with an 11-6 win over the St. Albert Angels, giving them first place in their pool and setting up a semi-final tilt against the Calgary Diamond Devils.

Holland pitched another gem, allowing just seven hits, as the Fusion made easy work of the Diamond Devils 17-4.

Kelsey Guse paced the offense with a double and two singles.
