Be­langer Memo­rial re­cap of 2A Soft­ball Provin­cials

The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - News - BY KAREN COLBOURNE

The boys soft­ball team from Be­langer Memo­rial trav­elled to Fer­ry­land on the east coast for the 2A Soft­ball Provin­cials on the week­end of Oct. 12.

Al­though they did not place in the medal round, they played very well against strong com­pe­ti­tion. Be­langer won their first game against Cape John of LaS­cie 10- 1 but lost to Bay D’Espoir in their sec­ond game.

The third game had Be­langer down by three runs against Tri­cen­tia and their mo­men­tum go­ing wild with the bases loaded and only one out when the game was stopped due to the fact that it was get­ting dark and safety be­came a con­cern.

The game com­menced the next day and it came down to the fi­nal out be­ing a pos­si­ble ty­ing run at the plate that left Be­lander short of miss­ing crossovers. The fi­nal score was 20-16 for Tri­cen­tia.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Ri­ley Col­lier for re­ceiv­ing the most sports­man­ship medal and to Cameron Col­lier for tak­ing home the MVP award. Thanks to Bal­ti­more School who hosted the tour­na­ment and teacher mod­er­a­tor Troy Seaward and coach Josh Colbourne. Par­ent vol­un­teers were also rec­og­nized for driv­ing over 10 hours and helped in en­sur­ing ev­ery­thing was or­ga­nized.
