Manitoba’s 17 female team was off to a hot start with two wins as box lacrosse made its debut at the Canada Summer Games in Ontario’s Niagara region Sunday.
Kaitlynn Anderson scored twice and added an assist while fellow Winnipegger Halle Chabluk had a goal and an assist as Manitoba opened with a 5-2 triumph over Saskatchewan.
Sidney Green and Keira Karpowicz also scored for the Manitobans, who got a 20-save performance from goaltender Kaylee Perry of Portage la Prairie.
In Manitoba’s second game, Perry made 37 saves and Emma-Lynne Green had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 victory over Quebec.
Chabluk also scored for the winners, who will play P.E.I. in their lone game Monday.
Elsewhere, Winnipeg’s Matt Thompson was the winning pitcher and went 2-for-4 with a single, double and four RBI in Manitoba’s 10-0 win over Newfoundland and Labrador in five innings on the opening day of action in male baseball.
The Manitobans face New Brunswick and Quebec in Monday’s action.
Meanwhile, Manitoba dropped a 5-0 decision to New Brunswick in female softball preliminary action.
Abbi Conrad, Janique Balcaen, Emily Doyle and Olivia Goderis provided hits for Manitoba, which faces Nova Scotia Monday.
In men’s preliminary soccer action, New Brunswick posted a 3-2 win over Manitoba. Next up for Manitoba is Tuesday’s match with P.E.I.
