Lafontaine Club will look to make it consecutive wins over Conception Bay opponents when it takes its league-leading record for a Molson St. John’s intermediate fastpitch game tonight at Lions Park.
Placentia-based Lafontaine (13-1) will take on the Conception Bay Central Junior Canadians at 8 p.m. in one of two games on the intermediate league schedule. Lafontaine downed the Conception Bay South Storm 6-1 Wednesday behind the two-hit pitching of Nick Pittman (1W, 14K) and home run from Andrew Kelly.
Tonight’s match against the Junior Canadians (4-10) comes just five days after C.B.C. blanked Lafontaine 2-0 in the final of the provincial intermediate championship.
Today’s other contest, with a 6 p.m., start, has the provincial under-19 team taking on the Roebothan McKay Marshall Republic (6-7). Like Lafontaine, the U19s (9-7) are coming off a victory on Wednesday, when they downed Sportscraft Waterford Valley 3-1.
Another Pittman — this time, Marcus Pittman (5H, 2W, 9K) — pitched the win, getting the decision over Waterford Valley’s Jeremy Hickey (7H, 4W, 10K).
Logan Power scored twice for the winners.
