Sooke Peewees take on Triangle teams

A summary of Sooke's Peewees game against Juan de Fuca last weekend.

This week Sooke Peewees got a taste of the upcoming Triangle playoffs dropping a couple of games on Tuesday evening and Saturday.

Even strong pitching from Chris Piatkowski and Storm Spackman, big hits from Malcom Issac and Owen Phipps and outstanding fielding from James Lewers, Tait Bishop and Connor North couldn’t overcome the strong Juan de Fuca teams.

Josh Heslop was Sooke’s outstanding player of the week smashing a triple,  catching a line drive on third and making a double play to first with a throw resembling a lighting bolt.

On Saturday Josh went on to delight the home fans with a brilliant exhibition of pitching.

The Sooke Peewee’s future is looking strong with these players showing such  potential and skill in only their first year.

Sooke Peewees play their last home game of the season this coming Saturday at 2 a.m. at the SEAPARC baseball diamond.
