Sooke Loggers place 2nd

The Sooke Loggers played at the Bob Law Memorial Challenge in Vancouver, a world-class fast pitch tournament, this past weekend. On Friday night they faced Fleetwood and came out ahead with a 5-2 win. Kristopher Walushka reported on their Facebook fan pages that Blake Hunter hit a grand slam home run.

On Saturday morning, the Loggers faced the Randy A’s and lost 4-0. Faced with a single knockout playoff their evening game against New Zealand was critical. Sooke stayed in the competition in that game, with a 7-2 win over New Zealand.

Next up, Sooke played the Lomas, and had a narrow 9-8 win, getting the winning run in the bottom of the 11th inning. In the finals, the Loggers lost to the Giants, 7-0 in six innings, achieving a second overall placement.

“Score doesn’t reflect the game,” Kristopher Walushka reported on Facebook. “We hit the ball well and the Giants made some fantastic plays on defense.”

Walushka also adds that next weekend the Loggers will be in Denmark, Wisconsin for the Boys of Summer Tournament.

Locally, we also had several fast-pitch softball teams going to Provincials championships on the weekend of July 4-6. The following information comes from the softball.bc.ca website. None of our teams placed in the top three, but the accomplishments come from placing in the Provincials. Congratulations Sooke!
