We were in the Niagara Falls Tournament this weekend. We opened on Friday evening against Whitby. I figured that Whitby would have been a stronger team but we beat them 12-3 or so. The strike zone was rather small (for both teams) but we were able to hit it.
Saturday morning we faced the Burlington Bulls. It was a duel, right to the end. We scored a single run in the 2nd inning and held a 1-0 lead until Burlington tied it in the bottom of the 6th. It looked like we'd end with a tie until we hit an over the fence homer in the 7th and then struck out the side in the bottom of the 7th.
Up next was the team from Newmarket. They hit the ball well, and often and beat us 11-0 in a mercied 5 inning game. We didn't move on due to run differential but all in all, the tournament was a success for us.
Newmarket ended up thumping Niagara Falls 9-0 in the championship game. It was sort of nice to see them take a pounding seeing as they have thumped us MANY times this season.
The NDBA regular season ends this week on Thursday. All we have left is playoffs, the CNE tournament and OBA's. I'll be happy and sad when it is all over.
Enjoy the week – out.
