Assiniboia wasted little time getting things going at the Caribou Heights diamond, as they sent 10 batters to the plate in the first inning and quickly built themselves a 7-0 lead. They’d carry an 8-2 edge into the fifth when the Ice bats came alive, scoring four runs to suddenly find themselves down only two.
The Aces tacked on three runs in their half of the fifth and would need every one of them, as the Ice would score four more in the sixth to head into their final at bat down 12-10. Assiniboia was able to retire the side in order to escape with the win.
Vanessa Knox reached base four times and scored a pair of runs for the Ice, while Maddison Thul, Maddie Sills and Madison Kemp also had two runs each for Moose Jaw.
Sarah Feeley led Assiniboia at the plate, reaching base four times and scoring two runs, with Amaya Giraudier, Raina Peterson and Callie Morhart also crossing the plate twice each.
League action continues Wednesday night as the Colts face the Ice and Heat take on the Hustlers.
