The girls from Stettler sent their competitors packing in a well-played match-up that ended in a score of 18-9.

Though the score was drastic, assistant coach Troy Anderson said the game wasn’t a walk in the park, with both teams frequently only a lucky hit away from pulling ahead of the other.

The girls’ ability to hit the ball was the key component of their win, according to Anderson.

“All of the girls were just really great with the bat,” he said, praising the 12 players on his team. “They just kept hitting the ball.”

For their part, Sylvan tried to keep up with the team, but found themselves in the deficit early on, always trying to catch up with the Crush.

“They’re showing excellent improvement,” Anderson said of his team.

The girls will be playing in this weekend’s tournament here in Stettler.
