Stettler U12 girls win one, lose two in provincials

Stettler U12 lost against Calgary and Trochu, scoring lone win against Red Deer.

Stettler U12 softball team played their first provincial game on Friday, July 7 against Calgary Nosecreek.

Unable to match up to their opponents, they conceded defeat 17-11.

On Saturday, they played Red Deer Rage and were able to inch past, scoring a victory 15-16. However, they weren’t able to keep the momentum going, and fell in their third game to Trochu White Sox.

That ended their provincial run, but assistant coach, Sarah Tucker were proud of the team’s efforts.

“We only had five girls who were in their second year, while the rest of the team were all playing for the first time, and many of them were underage,” Tucker said. “Overall this season has been a learning experience for all the girls and by the way their played these three games, I think they’ve come a long way.”
