For the first time this season, the Sooke Loggers have not come out on top.

For the first time this season, the Sooke Loggers have not come out on top.

The Loggers entered the Bob Law Memorial Challenge on Saturday, July 20 with a loss: the Randy A’s taking the game 5 to 1.

“Played pretty uninspired ball for the most part,” reported their manager Len Banner on the Logger’s Facebook fan site. “Our only run was a home run in the seventh by Brian Banner.”

In the afternoon, the Loggers played against the Meralomas and managed to tie the game, three all.

“A tough day at the park,” summed up Banner. “Go at it at 9 a.m. tomorrow looking to turn it around and play some Logger ball.”

On the following and final day of the tournament, the Loggers did play some Logger ball and took the game against Argentina with a 5 – 3 victory.

They slumped again in their in the play-off round where the first-place Giants cleaned up with an 8-1 win over the fourth place Sooke Loggers.

“Beat Argentina 5-3 to get fourth and final spot in the playoff round,” reported Banner. “Eliminated by the Vancouver Giants 8-1 mercy. Did not play well the whole weekend, way to many errors to hope to win. Hit in spurts but overall not a good weekend. Got some work to do before ISC’s but I’m sure the guys will respond well.”

The Loggers have a chance to pick it up again in Saskatoon, where they are scheduled to play on July 26 to 28.
