New­found­land-bound

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Led by Matt Power’s com­plete game, the Cap­i­tal District Is­landers downed the Western Mariners 6-4 in the fi­nal of the Base­ball P.E.I. ban­tam AAA elim­i­na­tion tour­na­ment Sun­day in Cardi­gan. Hot bats and solid de­fence in the weekend event helped the Is­landers to a 4-0 (won-lost) record in the dou­ble-elim­i­na­tion tourney. Western would’ve had to beat Cap­i­tal District twice in the play­offs to win the crown. The Is­landers will rep­re­sent P.E.I. at the At­lantic ban­tam AAA cham­pi­onship in Septem­ber in Grand Falls-Wind­sor, N.L. Mem­bers of the Is­landers are, front row, from left: Dy­lan Worth, Matt Dunn, Alex Gra­ham, Noah Dow and Tan­ner MacLean. Back row: Bill Dow (as­sis­tant coach), Jeff Squires (as­sis­tant coach), Jake Squires, Carter McNeil, Nolan Ryan, Sully Birch, Matt Power, To­bias Hood, Kevin MacLean (head coach) and Mike Ellsworth (as­sis­tant coach).
