NEW GLASGOW – The New Glasgow Sullivan Fuels Bantam AA Baseball team swept three exhibition games from the Cape Breton Sooners last weekend in New Glasgow.

Ashton Royea came in late to convert the save.

Adam Farrell, Lochead, Jared Langille and Ethan Tibbetts all had hits for New Glasgow.

New Glasgow again came out on top by a 3-2 score in the first game on Saturday. Langille, Jax Graham, and Royea were strong on the mound, giving up three hits. Lochead and Cory MacGillivray were the top hitters for the Fuel.

In the finale, New Glasgow’s offence exploded for 10 runs winning, 10-0 in five innings.

MacGillivray and Carter Dickson shut down the Cape Breton offence, surrendering just one hit.

Tanner Steele went 3-for-3, Lochead and Dickson batted 2-for-2, while Gage Connors, Brennan Dalton, Tibbetts, Langille and Peyton Clements each had single hits.

The Fuel crew next see action this Sunday at the Kinsmen complex in New Glasgow where they will face the Bridgewater Bulldogs for two games starting at noon.
