LAST TIME OUT VS. SENECA

With weather being a factor for most of the 2017 season, the two teams met at the Hawks Connorvale Park for doubleheader action in what was a Seneca home game night. The game, eventually an 8-4 Hawk win, proved to be the closest game between the two teams of the four played. In fact, Humber was down most of the game, being forced to one in the sixth to draw into a tie, and then four in the top of the seventh to salt the victory away. Andrew Thomson had the big blow, a bases clearing triple in the seventh for a game high three RBI's. Matthew Stoddart got the win and improved to 2-0, throwing two clean innings.
