The North Delta All-Stars dominated virtually every team in the province, but one.
After an undefeated regular season and a win at a tournament in Burnaby last month, North Delta won four of six games at the BC Minor Baseball Mosquito (11-and-under) Tier 2 provincial championship tournament in Mission to earn a silver medal.
Three one-sided wins (15-3 over Port Coquitlam, 18-6 against Maple Ridge and 8-3 over Kelowna) clinched a place in the playoff round. A 16-4 loss to Duncan, a game which determined first place in their pool, was the last of the round robin.
North Delta then toppled Mission 10-1 in a semifinal game, and faced Duncan for the championship. After taking a 9-3 lead after batting in the top of the third inning, North Delta couldn’t add to their total. Duncan took a one-run lead in the fourth inning and added four more in the fifth for a 14-9 victory.
North Delta players selected as game MVP’s during the provincial playoffs were Carter Spencer, Jalen Hong, Brock Robertson, Logan Killy, Connor Olesen and Josh Carter.
