Ponoka places fourth


The Ponoka Panthers peewee girls placed fourth in baseball provincials over the Canada Day weekend.

Their first game was a loss to Red Deer, followed by a win over Okotoks. Later that afternoon, after leading for most of the game, the Panthers lost to Medicine Hat, which rallied with a six-run inning from which Ponoka did not recover.

The Panthers were then in a playoff against Calgary. The girls played their best game and had their first triple play to knock Calgary out of the medal round.

Ponoka eliminated Red Deer from the medal round with a 20-7 mercy win. This sent the Panthers to the medal round against Provost team but they lost 10-4.

Provost won provincials with a mercy win against Medicine Hat.

Ponoka then played Jarvie, who made a one-run advance on the Panthers in the bottom of the sixth to win the bronze medal.

The coaches are proud of the girls who had to play seven games of intense baseball and gave the top two teams the best run for the money of all the teams they had played all weekend.
