It was a busy weekend all around with multiple divisons making a name for the Falcons family across Ontario.
The Falcons 15U Selects Girls flew into Etobicoke this past weekend and had a great tournament. The girls went 4-0 in round robin play. Beating Mississauga Lady Jays 11-2, Kitchener/Waterloo 8-4, St.Catharines 9-7 and Oakville 14-9.
All four games were in a row with very little break. The girls advanced to the gold medal game, where they fell just short. Losing to Milton 8-4. This was the first time Milton have beaten the Falcons.
Our Falcons 15U team hosted our tournament in Forest Glade this past weekend welcoming teams from Oakville, Strathroy, Lucan-Ilderton, Southwest London and Lakeshore.
They went 2-1 in round robin play with wins over Lakeshore (11-7) & SW London (18-0) and the loss coming to Oakville (10-7).
They finished the round robin in second place and a date in the semi finals against Lucan-Ilderton. Our team used timely hitting & a complete game pitching performance from Reese Bondy to punch their ticket to the final vs the top seeded Strathroy Royals.
The final was a close back and forth offensive affair that saw 26 total runs scored with the Strathroy Royals pulling away in the late innings for the win.
Excellent starting pitching performances helped the team throughout the tournament, getting complete games from Karter Holman and Reese Bondy, an excellent opening game start from Cooper Sholomiski and, a great performance against a high-powered Strathroy team in the final from John Houle.
The coaching staff was very proud of each of our Falcons and how the represented our league with their great play and sportsmanship. This team continues to grow together as we work towards provincials.
