Guyana go down 16-1 to Newfoundland

THE Guyana Women 21U team yesterday played their first match in Baseball Canada’s Women 21U Invitational in Halifax Canada.The game against Newfoundland, one of Canada’s smaller provinces was the second of the competition.
The Guyana Women, dubbed the Kanimas, got off to a slow start playing as the Home team for this game.
Eight runs were allowed in the first innings and starting pitcher Sauda Smartt was moved to the outfield after being overcome with nerves as the first innings at bat saw the Kanimas hold their own, with a single from lead of batter Emily Ramsuchit
Ramsuchit who then cleverly stole second, got to third on a passed ball and raced home on a double from Aletha Crandon to score Guyana’s first International run in clever style.
Unfortunately it was to be the only run scored as Marisa Jahoor was taken for four runs in the second. The coaches made the decision to make the change early to Shamira Ramsuchit who steadied the ship giving up only 2 runs before handing off to Ianna Graham who closed the last two innings with 4 strikeouts and one run conceded by an error at shortstop.
Graham was awarded player-of-the-match for Guyana as the team went down 16-1.
Team manager Robin Singh, after the game, preferred to look at the positives, saying, “We did have a deer in the headlights moment but the recovery was evident and we competed well in the closing innings of the match.”
