The Compass - - ORTHTE -

The CBN Ban­tam AAA and Mos­quito AA teams from Up­per Is­land Cove both had im­pres­sive re­sults at pro­vin­cial Ban­tam AAA and Mos­quito AA tour­na­ments held over the week­end of Aug. 5-7 in Gan­der.

Af­ter drop­ping the first game of the tour­na­ment on Fri­day, Aug. 5 the Mos­quito team re­sponded with two big wins on Satur­day, Aug. 6 to push them­selves into the semi­fi­nals on Sun­day, Aug. 7.

A team spokesman said the boys played a great game, but fell short in the end, los­ing 11 to 9 against a good team from Grand Falls Wind­sor.

De­spite the fact the boys were hop­ing to make the fi­nal, the tour­na­ment was a great tune-up for the Mos­quito AA At­lantics be­ing played in Up­per Is­land Cove in Septem­ber.

On the Ban­tam side, the team got off to a great start on Fri­day with a 5 to 0 win over Gan­der.

Heavy rains forced the can­cel­la­tion of the Satur­day and Sun­day sched­ule. The Up­per Is­land Cove team went di­rectly into the semi-fi­nals on Mon­day, Aug. 8. Af­ter a big win against CBS in the semi-fi­nal, the CBN Ban­tam AAA team met the St. John’s Cap­i­tals in the fi­nal.

The CBN team came home with a sil­ver medal af­ter los­ing 8-4 to the St. John’s Cap­i­tals.

Af­ter their sil­ver medal per­for­mance, the CBN Ban­tam AAA Base­ball team are now ranked num­ber two in the prov­ince for their age group be­hind St. John’s.

Ban­tam player Chris Smith won the top pitcher award at the AAA Tour­na­ment, while Ban­tam player Nick Parsons picked up the tour­na­ment’s most spir­ited and ef­fec­tive player.

The Mos­quito A team were sched­uled to host host the pro­vin­cial tour­na­ment in Up­per Is­land Cove over the week­end of Aug. 12-14.
