(WINDSOR, ON) – The St Clair women’s softball team is off and running early in the OCAA season, picking up a pair of wins Friday in Kitchener against the Conestoga Condors and then another doubleheader sweep of defending Provincial Champion Durham College at the campus diamond on Sunday afternoon.

The Saints won 13-2 and 10-8 on Friday night over Conestoga Budd Park. Rookie Olivia Elliott picked up her first collegiate win in the opener after pitching 6 strong innings and giving up just a pair of earned runs on 6 hits and striking out 5.

Second-year catcher Alexandra Senft stroked 3 hits and 2 RBIs while Allison Telfer had 2 hits and 4 runs batted in.

In the nightcap, St Clair delivered a win to 2nd year pitcher Sara Stiller, who struck out 7 batters in 7 innings of work. Windsor’s Megan Lumley and Telfer each had 3 hits to lead the Saints attack offensively.

In a rematch of last fall’s Provincial Championship final, St Clair exacted some revenge Sunday afternoon by picking up 5-2 and 3-2 wins over the Durham Lords.

Elliott struck out 4 over 7 innings for St Clair, and spread 5 hits and a walk. Sarah Bondy had two doubles and an RBI to lead the Saints at the plate.

Completing the weekend sweep, Telfer also went the distance while surrendering just 2 earned runs on 6 hits and 2 walks. Rookie third baseman Jordan Taylor delivered the decisive blow for the Saints by lacing a shot over the right fielder’s head for a 2-RBI triple in the 3rd inning, giving her team a 3-0 lead which they never relinquished.

The Saints go on the road to face Fanshawe (0-2) Tuesday night in London.
