The Guelph Peak Performance Midget Gators had a rough weekend in Brantford finishing up 1-3 in pool play in their annual tournament and not advancing to the playoff round on Sunday afternoon.
Peak opened up losing a couple of early leads and dropping a 5-4 decision to the provincial team from Quebec. Aaliyah Davidson took the loss in relief of Alissa Petrosoniak as Quebec pushed across a run on a hit , a walk and an error in the last inning. The Gators had jumped to an early 2-0 lead on an Emily Cava walk, a Sam McMahon single and a long triple to left by Amy Campagnolo. After the visitors tied it, Cava singled in Alex Dunbar with the go ahead run and Petronsoniak would score on a wild pitch.
Next up the Peak girls had another rough 6th inning allowing Enniskillen 4 runs to drop a 7-3 count. Jessica Turnbull took the loss in relief of Campagnolo who left with the game tied at 3. Turnbull had a triple and Davidson a double to pace the offense while single hits went to McMahon, Petrosoniak, Rachelle Washkevich and Melissa Cook.
The host Brantford next played a flawless game with strong pitching and defense downing the Gators 5-0 in the finale on Saturday. Davidson did pitch 3 scoreless innings in relief of Turnbull as a good point for the game while the Peak offense only managed hits by Tori Patteson and Turnbull.
In the final pool game, the local girls bombed Mississauga North 17-4 to support the complete game efforts of Petrosoniak. Davidson had a key game with 3 hits and 4 RBI’s while Cook drove in 3 teammates with 3 hits of her own. Dunbar and Turnbull also had 2 hit games of their own in the team’s 15 hit attack.

Peak Performance Midget Girls rallied from an early deficit to down St Catharines Angels 7-5 at Exhibition Park on Tuesday evening. Jess Turnbull earned the win fanning 5 and allowing only 1 base runner in 3 stellar relief innings to close out the game.
The Gator girls scored 6 times in the 5th inning to overcome a 5-0 deficit. After Storm pitchers allowed 4 walks in the frame, Alanna Hentges hit a sacrifice fly to plate Dunbar to make it 5-4. Washkevich and Patteson followed with RBI singles to put the locals ahead.
In the 6th the Peak Girls added another run on a single by Davidson and a triple by Cook to make the final count 7-5.
