NEW ENGLAND RIPTIDE TAKES FIRST GAME AGAINST TEAM CANADA, 6-5

The New England Riptide played their first game against the Canadian National Team Thursday night and overcame deficits of 4-0 and 5-1 to win 6-5. Jocelyn Forest was brilliant in relief for the Riptide, relieving starter Danielle Henderson in the second, and allowing one run on only three hits while striking out eight. Robin Mackin received the start in the circle for Canada allowing four hits in six innings.

The offense came early for Canada as they opened the scoring in the bottom of the first inning as Melanie Matthews scored on an overthrow pick-off attempt on Sheena Lawrick at first base. The offense continued in the bottom of the second with Matthews who singled to score Erin Cumpstone who reached on a walk and Rachel Schill who reached with a single. Kristy Odamura rounded out the scoring, stealing home on a wild pitch.

Down 4-0 after two, the Riptide scored one in the third on a homerun by Lindy Winkler.

In the sixth, down 5-1, the Riptide scored five to take the lead, helped out by a bit of wildness from Canadian relief pitcher Kaila Holtz. Walks to Jen Scavone, Mariangee Bogado and a single by Jackie Pasquerella loaded the bases with no outs. After a strikeout by Lisa Iancin, and a walk to Kristin Vesely, Winkler got her 2nd, 3rd and 4th RBIs of the night with a bases clearing double into left center to tie the game. She scored quickly on Tarrah Beyster's single up the middle to give the Riptide their final run.

The Riptide and Team Canada continue their four game series Friday night with a game in Brampton, Ontario and on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon back in Kitchener.
