The Conestoga Condors Women’s Softball Team lost both games of a double header versus Humber College on Sunday, Sep. 25, 2022 at Budd Park in Kitchener. The final scores were 3-2 and 9-4 in favour of Humber.

While the team wasn’t able to get the result they wanted out there today, there is a lot for them to be happy about.

Earlier this season they played Humber and lost 11-6. Today’s outing shows that the team’s defence is tightening up as the season progresses.

In the first game they had a tie game at 2-2 heading into the 7th and final inning, but unfortunately were unable to close the deal. With two outs and the bases clear Humber was able to hit a few singles to get runners on base, and was able to bring in the winning run on a pinch hit.

While in the second game both teams bats were hot early on and tied the scoring output from the first game within the first two innings. By the fifth inning the Condors had trailed Humber 8-1, but the team showed a lot of resilience and made a game of it. Responding with three runs in the bottom of the fifth to make it 8-4. 

The bats unfortunately went cold for the Condors after that but it demonstrated to Humber that they weren’t just going to hand them the game.

“We played to the end, we didn’t quit, and we worked really hard as a team,” team captain Marin Delaney told Spoke News post game. “Our bats came alive at points, but I think the main takeaway from today is that we fought to the end.”

Despite not getting the result they wanted, Delaney commended her teammates for a good effort on the field.

“In the first game Haley (Breen) pitched one of the best games of her season … We had some girls that don’t normally always start and they came in and helped us when we needed hits,” Delaney said.
