The Williams Lake Lakers capped off an impressive season late September winning the Overlander Pub Fundraiser Tournament at the Esler Sports Complex.
The Lakers, coming off a win at the Williams Lake Slo-Pitch League Year-End Tournament earlier in the month, marched away with the championship after winning three back-to-back games — the last coming against the Williams Lake Rowdies in the ‘A’ division final.
In the ‘A’ division semifinals it was the Rowdies edging the visiting Prince George No Glove No Love, while the Lakers, later on, beat the Prince George club to advance to the final.
On the ‘B’ side of the draw it was the McChickens edging the Highlife to win the title.
The top three teams in the ‘B’ division each won team prize packages, while cash went to the top teams in the ‘A’ division.
The first-place Lakers received $900 and a team package, while the Rowdies won $550 and a team package.
Third place in the tournament, Prince George, picked up $350.
All of the money raised at the Overlander Pub Fundraiser Tournament will be used to upgrade and improve the fields at the Esler Sports Complex.
