The girls played 5-0 go­ing into the fi­nal round of provin­cials, fall­ing to the Trochu White Soxs 16-1.

“We have been hav­ing trou­ble beat­ing Trochu as it is over the years. They won provin­cials last year, so they were ex­pe­ri­enced. We didn’t go in ex­pect­ing to get a medal , we just wanted the ex­pe­ri­ence and we told them to do their best and put their best foot for­ward and they did,” said Coach Dale Telford.

The U12 girls are happy to have won sil­ver.

“The girls were a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed they didn’t get gold, but we re­minded the girls that there were 10 teams that didn’t go home with any­thing, so they were grate­ful,” says Telford.

Most of the girls on the Vipers will be mov­ing up to U14 next year. Telford is ex­cited to see where they will go and proud of his team.

“The girls played well to- gether, they were are all quick and were turn­ing dou­ble plays, they had a cou­ple of home runs, awe­some catch­ing, and awe­some pitch­ing. They just nailed it.”
