A good recent tourney has earned the Bantam C fastball girls a spot in Provincials – Chilliwack, July 8-10. In their first game vs Cordova Bay #3, Sooke won 12-8. for Sooke. In the second game they edged Cordova

Bay 2-1. 

 

Sunday they faced Duncan # 1. After the fourth it was 5-3 for Duncan but Sooke came back to win 10-7, and gain a berth in the  on to the Gold/Silver game against Peninsula # 1.

Peninsula had mercied everyone to that point.  Sooke fought hard, got some awesome hits, which Peninsula managed to field on the way to a 16-3 win.

The Sooke girls were proud to have made it that far and happy to be receiving the silver medal.  As they were about to get their medals, the South Vancouver Island Fastball representative announced that they were sending two teams to the provincials from district one, and that Sooke would be going as well.  Amid the cheers, hoopla and shocked tears, the girls pulled it together to receive their medals graciously.
