Canada’s softball team opened the Tokyo Olympics with a shutout win over Mexico on Tuesday.
Saanich’s Emma Entzminger was busy but perfect at third base – helping the Canadian’s play seven innings of errorless ball. She caught a pop-fly in the first and threw out every batter that hit a ground ball her way.
Entzminger went 0-for-2 at the plate, but reached first base after being hit by a pitch.
Canada got off to a quick start in the 4-0 victory, scoring two in the bottom of the first inning.
They’ll look to improve to 2-0 when they play the United States at 5 p.m (Pacific Time) on Wednesday.
The women's softball team defeated Mexico 4-0 💪
