Loggers lose, fans stay loyal

The Sooke Loggers had a short and disappointing presence at this year’s ISC World Fastball tournament, played in Kitchener from August 8 - 16.

They started with a 0-2 loss, in a game against host city’s Kitchener Cartage Outlaws, played on Sunday August 10. On Monday, they played two games, winning both. First, they faced the Shakespeare Falcons, and won by a thin margin of 7.6; next they played Sweaburg Crush, and won with a commanding score of 8-1.

Tuesday morning they met their demise in a game against the Hallman Twins from Kitchener, with a 1-8 loss in six innings. With this loss, the Loggers were eliminated from play.

Despite the loss, fans solidly supported the Loggers through social media. “Stand tall Loggers,” posted one fan. “You still rock Loggers! Hold your heads high,” wrote another. “Proud of you all,” noted a third.
