Sooke Loggers heading to playoffs in national softball championship

Local club settles for second place in round-robin play

The Sooke Loggers were forced to settle for second place as the round-robin schedule of the 2018 Canadian National Senior Men’s Fastpitch Softball championship concluded in St. Croix, N.S. Friday night.

The Loggers after winning their first five games of the tournament faced the Newfoundland Galway-Hitmen and were hammered 12-1. The loss means a re-match with the defending Canadian national champions the East Hants Mastadons this morning.

The defending champs finished in third place with a 4-2 record with one of their losses coming in the tournament opener Wednesday against the Loggers by an 8-3 score.

Sooke can play its way into a berth for the national championship Sunday afternoon, they just have to ensure they do not lose two games before the championship game.
