Sooke Peewees’ battle versus Gordon Head had with a few close calls like this one.

Sooke Peewees put up valiant fight

Our Sooke boys may have lost the battle with Gordon Head, but they sure put up a good fight.

The Sooke Triangles Peewees hosted their final home game this past weekend at SEAPARC, facing off with one of their strongest opponents yet, the Gordon Head fastball boys team.

Still, our Sooke boys didn’t let up easily, firmly standing their ground even when completely overwhelmed. Now, the team is looking ahead to the Triangle playoff tournament this coming weekend in Colwood and the City championship in Victoria.

Chris Piatkowski and Storm Spackman again brought tremendous pitching but were overpowered by the incredible display of hitting from Gordon Head slugger Alexander Baan-Meiklejohn.

The usual boisterous Sooke home fans were silenced as Alexander crushed four home runs at his four appearances at bat.  Baan-Meiklejohn will be one to watch in the years to come.
