Canterbury coach picks up 100th victory

ST. PETERSBURG — Canterbury was very familiar with Academy at the Lakes, having faced the Wildcats on three previous occasions.

And the outcome was the same, as the Crusaders won 11-2 in the Class A region semifinals Friday.

This victory was special to fifth-year coach Jody Moore, who nabbed her 100th win.

The Crusaders (20-7) jumped on the Wildcats early. Lacy Adams drove in two runs, and Emily Winesett singled to drive in a one to put Canterbury up 3-0 in first inning. But the Wildcats (11-8) responded by scoring two runs, with two hits on an error.

In the fifth inning Canterbury's bats started to come alive, as the team scored five runs on four hits to go up 8-2.

Pitcher Krissy Longstreet hit a gargantuan home run, followed by doubles from Adams and Savvy Mitchell. Mallory Posey singled, along with Julia Cieutat.

In the sixth inning the Crusaders added three insurance runs.

"This was a real sweet win and there is some degree of difficulty in facing a team four times in one season," Moore said.
