Sooke U14 boys captured the gold in the rep. division during Provincials at Richmond over the weekend with a solid team effort. Getting stellar pitching all weekend from Tyson Friesen, Dale Arden and Nin Dougall, the Sooke boys breezed through the round robin section of the tournament undefeated. The highlight was the 5-4 victory over the home squad Mariners.

Sooke achieved placement in the top flight rep. division with their play in the round robin, and met the Mariners for a rematch Sunday morning to start the medal round. After a slow start, the Sooke boys chipped away at the Mariners early lead only to fall short by a 8-6 score. Sooke then played Smithers for the right to meet the Mariners in the finals. They got their game back on track to take the win by a 11-3 score. That win set up the gold medal game with Richmond, where the Sooke boys got of to a good start. They worked through some anxious moments and held onto the lead throughout the game to take the gold by a 10-7 score.

Consistent hitting by Keiran Connor, Boston Greenhough, Quinn Titchkosky, Noah Wass, Jackson Smith, Tyson Friesen and Nin Dougall carried the Sooke offense throughout the tournament. Great all-round team play from Matt Mclain, Arran Wass-Little, Oliver Forcier, Erik Arts and Grant Lewers.They were a huge factor in the Sooke squad capturing the championship.
