Women: 2013 Phoenix Cup Day 1 Results

Day 1 is in the books at the 2013 Women’s Phoenix Cup in Hong Kong. Three teams started off strong with 2-0 records and last year’s top two teams faced off as well in what turned out to be an interesting game.

One of the teams to get off to a hot start was Team Australia. The 18U team started well with a pair of big wins including one over a strong Korea team to open the tournament with a 9-1 win. They followed it up with an even more impressive win over Taipei Vanguard 13-0.

They will face their toughest test on Day 2 playing against the defending champion Shilin High School from Taiwan.

Shilin High School won the title last year and started off again in 2013 with two wins. In their first match of the tournament, they had stiff competition from the Far East Bombers of Japan, last year’s runner-up. Shilin jumped on Japan with a 7-run 3rd inning and had to hold off a late comeback. Trailing 7-2 in the 7th and final inning, Japan scored 4 runs but couldn’t overcome the 5-run deficit losing 7-6.

After that game, Shilin High rolled over the Hong Kong Development team 13-1 ending the game after 3 innings due to the mercy rule.

The other team to start off 2-0 was the host Allies from Hong Kong. The only team to play in every Phoenix Cup got the day rolling with a 18-4 trouncing of Korea spurred by an 11-run 2nd inning. They finished the day taking down Taipei Vanguard 10-1.
