The Rowdies took home a victory in the final A division match against the Shrewz on the last day of the Williams Lake Slo-Pitch League’s year-end tournament.
On Saturday, the Rowdies defeated the Rookies, and the Shrewz the Lakers.
When the Rowdies went up against the Shrewz on Saturday, they lost but weren’t ready to declare defeat as they upset the Shrewz on Sunday, winning 9-7 in the final game.
In the B division, the Arrows won every game they played this past weekend, including the final 8-7 game against the Wild Chickens on Sunday.
In the C division final, the BeerOcrats defeated the Bears with a whopping 20-8 score.
The Bears had defeated the Beer-O-Crats in Saturday’s game, but weren’t able to hold their position and later lost to the Beer-O-Crats in Sunday’s final round.
“The C division was a huge upset, with the Bears winning all the way, and then the Beer-O-Crats come in from behind and beat them 20-8,” says Linda Barbondy, Williams Lake Slo Pitch League president.
She says 22 out of the league’s 24 teams participated in the tournament that began Wednesday and concluded Sunday.
“We did a three-game round robin and there were 22 teams and 20 teams made the playoffs,” Barbonday says.
The year-end banquet will be held on Sept. 17, beginning at 6 p.m., at the Longhouse. In addition to dinner, the night will feature awards, games, and entertainment, including music from Chilcotin Dreams.
“I’m looking forward to the banquet,” Barbondy says.
Tickets, which are $20 each, can be purchased through Barbondy at 250-392-6643.
