Good Opening Weekend for Chilliwack Peewee AA Cougars Navy
Good opening weekend for The Chilliwack Peewee AA Cougars, playing in the Aldergrove Minor Baseball Ice Breaker tournament. April 5th – 7th.
The boys went 4-0 with an eventual 6-5 Win against Newton/Surrey in the final to earn the championship. Strong outings on the mound and good defensive play allowed only 10 runs against the entire weekend, while great hitting led the way scoring 29 runs over 4 games.
The boys got their feet wet on Saturday playing in the first games of the season winning both by scores or 11-2 and 9-2. Sunday would prove to be a test, facing a very good Newton/Surrey in game 3, who won the 2018 Provincial championship. However, starting Pitcher Ryan Post would give Chilliwack an edge by pitching a 3-hit, 1- run complete game, while he and his team mates put 3 on the board over 6 innings for the win.
The championship final would see a re match of game 3 with both teams finishing first and second in round robin play. Both teams where led by great pitching again, and great at bats with Chilliwack edging Newton/Surrey again this time by 1 run and a 6-5 Victory. Another great pitching start by Riley Kwak and eventual closer Alex Rezka.
Most valuable player of the game went to Seb Chalmers-Owega who drove in 2 RBI’s in the 5th that proved to be the game winning runs.
