The Carnduff Southeast Steelers finished third at the Open Senior B Women's Western Canadian Fastpitch Championships in Saskatoon. The event happened from August 15 to 18. The first day of the tournament went really well for the Steelers, as they won all three of their games. In their opening contest, they defeated the Calgary Red Sox 7-0. Aimee Unchulanko was the pitcher of record, as she tossed a complete game, allowing two hits, and striking out five. Unchulanko and Carey Crossman supplied the offence with three hits apiece. Unchulanko also had five runs batted in (RBI). The following game, the Steelers had another 7-0 win against Manitoba's Seine River Selects. The Steelers jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first inning and scored in every inning but the second. The mercy rule came into play, as the game only went five innings. Janeesa Penner helped out the offence, as she went four-for-four in the matchup. Janna Sittler allowed three hits in a complete game effort to get the win. The Steelers' third game of the day resulted in a 9-4 win against the Edmonton Warriors Pride. The Steelers were trailing 3-2 in the first inning, but in the fourth inning the Steelers scored four runs to pull away, and added two insurance runs in the fifth. Penner reached base every at bat. Alyssa Taylor was the pitcher of record as she pitched a complete game, with nine strikeouts, allowing four hits and was responsible for three of the four runs scored. The Steelers suffered their first loss of the round-robin as they dropped a 6-0 decision against the Saskatoon Outlaws. Saskatoon's pitcher was too much for the Steelers as they only had one hit during the game. The Steelers would rebound by defeating the Brandon Westman Magic 5-0. All of the Steelers runs came in the top half of the third inning. Carman Coffey went three for three while Sittler led the team with two RBI's. The final game of the round robin, against the Edmonton Warriors, was a 3-1 win for the Steelers. Alyssa Taylor pitched a complete game, striking out three, and allowed two hits. Jocelyn Kratchmer drove in two runs while Karmen Coffey had the other RBI. “I was very happy with the round robin play; we played some awful good ball, and couldn't ask for anything better,” said Steelers coach Allan Hubbard. The Steelers finished the round robin with record of 5-1, and were matched up against the undefeated Outlaws in a game to determine who would advance directly to the final. The game was scoreless through seven innings, sending it to extra innings. The Steelers scored a run in the top half of the ninth to take the lead, but Outlaws countered with two in the ninth to win 2-1. Jana Sittler pitched the whole game. She allowed four hits and struck out seven. That win sent to the Outlaws to the final and the Steelers were matched up against the Edmonton Warriors in the semi-final. The Warriors scored four runs in the second inning and two in the third en route to a 7-4 win. Overall, Hubbard said the team had good pitching and batting, and awesome defence. “We won bronze medal and that's nothing to hang our head about,” said Hubbard.
