Halton Hills Midget AA Brantford Tournament Champs!
The Halton Hills Eagles Midget AA Tier 1 team won the Brantford AA tournament this past weekend in convincing fashion winning all 5 games beating the host Brantford Red Sox 7 – 0 in the final. Halton allowed only 5 runs over 33 innings with stellar pitching and defence against some tough competition and mainly older teams sporting 18U rosters. First 4 games were tight up until the 5th and 6th innings when Halton broke out the bats to take control of the game and busted open the final with 5 runs in the first inning.
This was an all round team effort from our group of 15 players and is our 3rd tournament final of the year. The first is still to be played against the Barrie Baycats from the MNBA tournament that was rained soaked earlier in May and the second was a tough loss in Stratford against the Waterdown Wolves 4 – 3.
Results from the Brantford tournament were as follows:
Game #1 Halton Hills 7 Scarborough Stingers 1
Game #2 Halton Hills 5 Waterdown Wolves 1
Game #3 Halton Hills 9 Waterloo Tigers 3
Semi Halton Hills 6 Bloordale Bombers 0
Final Halton Hills 7 Brantford Red Sox 0
