The Carnarvon Falcons U14 girls are among the top 10 best teams in PeeWee C ball in B.C.

They finished ninth at provincials last weekend (July 4 to 6) in Ridge Meadows.

“We came out of the gate strong and beat the host team in a close game,” said coach Donny Leong. “But the tournament was tough and we ended up 1-3 after the round robin.

The 15-member team regrouped Saturday night to steam through Sunday forging three wins to score gold in the B Pool and finish ninth in the province.

“We went into it hoping to be a top 10 team and with really clutch pitching during the Sunday games we turned our weekend around with three wins,” Leong said. “It always feels excellent to end the season with a win and the future looks bright as our team is made up of all first-year players in our age group, so we should be back even stronger next season.”

The U14 girls played eight games, taking the long way to the finals after an early loss in round robin play at district finals last month to score a berth at provincials.
