HOPEVILLE, Ont. - It is one step closer to a spot in the Provincial Women's Softball Association 16U West final.

The D1 Revolution took advantage of some wild pitching to pull out an 8-3 win over the Arthur Twisters, in a 16U quarterfinal on Wednesday.

The Revolution only had five hits but drew eight walks, had a hit batsman and capitalized on the Twisters' one error.

Tied after both sides scored three in the third inning, the Revolution scored five times in the bottom of the fourth.

Sarah Stewart (pictured) put the Revolution ahead, 4-3, on a triple that scored Tess McCallum who led off with a walk. After Lexie Sawyer took a base on balls and Brooke Siefried reached first on a bunt single to load the bases, Karlee Curran drove in one run. Two more runs followed on an error in left field, for a 7-3 lead.

Torie Windle doubled but Curran was thrown out at the plate. Windle scored the Revolution's eighth run on a RBI single from Chloe Hocquard.

It was Windle producing a two-run double in the third inning, putting the Revolution on the board after the Twisters jumped out to a 3-0 lead. Megan Peacock tied the affair on a RBI ground out.

Pitching for the Revolution, Hocquard tossed a complete game five hitter striking out seven batters and walking three.

Windle finished two for four with two RBIs. Sawyer drew three walks and scored twice.

D1 Revolution will face either Oakville or Halton in a semifinal in early August. The West final is scheduled to be played mid August. The 16U final is a best of three game series between the West and East bracket winners.
