Welcome to sportkingston!
A couple of familiar faces weren’t particularly friendly to their former teammates Saturday night at the Ontario Amateur Softball Association junior elimination tournament in Owen Sound.
Greg Hammell and Craig Lyons, two players originally from Owen Sound who joined Napanee for its trip to the Canadian junior championship last year, each had two base-hits as the New Hamburg Cubs defeated Napanee Shoeless Joe’s 4-1 in the undefeated game at the 10-tournament.
Hammell drove in his run with a double in the third inning, when New Hamburg scored twice to overcome a 1-0 Napanee lead. Lyons belted a solo home run in the fifth.
Hammell also collected the pitching win, holding Napanee to just two hits and one unearned run. He struck out eight and didn’t allow a base on balls.Read More >>

Kingston Grenadiers are proving to be a pretty resilient bunch.
They ignored a trick play that led to a touchdown on their opponent’s first possession Saturday, scoring the next time they had the ball. They shook off the effects of a turnover that led the Metro Toronto Wildcats to score a touchdown in the second quarter by getting a touchdown and field goal in the final three minutes of the first half.
Carrying that momentum through the remainder of the ball game, the Grenadiers posted a 51-27 Ontario Varsity Football League victory over Metro at Loyalist Collegiate.
Irrepressible as the Grens were within Saturday’s game, the total performance was a nice response to a difficult defeat suffered a week ago against the division-leading Ottawa Myers Riders.Read More >>
Visiting teams will be seeing double when they come to Napanee for the Canadian junior fastball championship in August.
That’s because there will be two teams representing the host town, thanks to a courageous display Saturday by the Napanee Express at the Ontario Amateur Softball Association junior elimination tournament in Owen Sound.
After opening with a win Friday night, the Express, one of two Napanee teams in the tournament, dropped a heart-breaking 10-9 decision Saturday morning against New Hamburg, one of the pre-tournament favourites.
In that game, the Express chased Tyler Randerson and Matt Wardrop, two of the top pitchers in the province, before finally succumbing to two New Hamburg runs in the bottom of the seventh inning.Read More >>
Cole Bolton had as many hits as he gave up Saturday afternoon, as he led Napanee Shoeless Joe’s to a 13-3 win over the Owen Sound Selects at the Ontario Amateur Softball Association junior elimination tournament in Owen Sound.
The victory, Napanee’s second of the day, sends Joe’s into the undefeated game tonight at 8 o’clock against the New Hamburg Cubs, 4-2 winners Saturday afternoon over Tavistock.
Napanee’s lead-off batter, Bolton singled in the first, third and fourth innings and his grand slam home run highlighted a seven-run Napanee fifth. He scored three runs and he finished the game with four runs batted in.
From the circle, Bolton allowed four hits and struck out five, but he was touched for two home runs.
Sloan Creighton also homered for Napanee, a three-run shot in the third inning, and he also drove in four runs. Read More >>
Eric Morgan struck out 12 and allowed just two singles Saturday morning as Napanee Shoeless Joe’s defeated Chatsworth 4-0 at the Ontario Amateur Softball Association junior elimination tournament in Owen Sound.
It was the first game of the tournament for Napanee, which will now play the host team at 2 p.m.
Owen Sound opened with a 5-4 win over Alvinston Friday night.
Cole Bolton and Brett Irwin had two hits apiece in an eight-hit Napanee attack. Irwin drove in a pair of runs, and No. 9 hitter Michael Jordan scored twice and delivered a solo home run for the winners, for whom five of the eight hits were for extra bases.
The game was scoreless until the fifth inning, when Napanee scored twice on Jordan’s home run and an RBI double by Taylor Brown. Two runs in the top of the seventh provided some insurance.Read More >>
