Eagles soar at provincials

Victoria squads capture gold in A and AAA divisions at provincial championships

Victoria’s Mosquito A (Red Eagles) and Mosquito AAA (Black Eagles) struck gold at the provincial championships last weekend.

Each team, comprised of the top divisional players from five parks throughout the city, competed against nine other teams from around the province at the B.C. minor baseball championships in Cloverdale.

The ‘A’ Red Eagles compiled a 5-1 record over the weekend, losing their only game to Abbotsford during tournament play. In their final game, the team rallied with six runs in the sixth and final inning for a come-from-behind 7-3 win over Abbotsford.

The AAA Black Eagles went undefeated over the weekend, upending Ladner 11-6 in the final. It was a sweet victory for the team, made up of most of the same players and coaches from last year who lost their only game in the provincial final.
