Coach Baker’s Minor Bantam Tier 2 EAGLES are 2019 Minor Bantam A Guelph ‘Rival Series’ tournament CHAMPIONS!
The Minor Bantam Tier 2 Eagles opened the tourney with a decisive win against the Kitchener Panthers by a score of 7-0. They qualified for the championship pool on Saturday morning with a tight, defensive game with the Cambridge Cubs which HHMBA lost 5-2 (all unearned runs for some sleepy teens). The team slogged through a rainy Saturday afternoon against the Thornhill Reds and survived our quarter-final match 6-1 to make it to the semis in a downpour with gail-force winds.
Play resumed on Sunday against the Ajax Spartans and the Eagles overcame an early deficit to win our semi-final 11-5. The team carried the momentum in to a re-match with the Cambridge Cubs and the depth of our pitching shone through for a final tally of 9-5 in the Championship Victory!
