Robert Q Travel ad­vances to Men’s A semi­fi­nals

Tillsonburg News - - SPORTS - Dave Weaver

Only three se­ries of the 11 played in Till­son­burg Men’s slo­p­itch went the dis­tance to a fifth and de­cid­ing game. There was one sweep in A, one in B and one in C.

The Till­son­burg Ladies com­menced their fi­nal se­ries this week and none of them will end in a sweep.

Let’s hope a warm front comes in this week mak­ing it more en­joy­able for play­ers and spec­ta­tors.

This com­ing week­end sev­eral teams will be mak­ing the trek to the SPN Pro­vin­cial Cham­pi­onships in Ni­a­gara Falls. Corey’s Restau­rant, Indi-Girls and Ser­vice Mas­ter will be com­pet­ing in Women’s C while Ward’s Au­to­mo­tive, Corey’s Restau­rant, Di­a­mond Dogs and Ham­mer­time will be in the Men’s Rec di­vi­sion. Good luck to all!
