Mosquito AA Provincials

The Mosquito Warriors travelled to Cole Harbour on the weekend to compete for the Mosquito AA Provincial title in an 8 team tournament. Their first game Friday was scoreless into the 5th inning before they ended up losing 7-3. The next day they got back to form beating Tri-County 7-3 and Dartmouth 6-5 clinching a spot in Sunday’s crossovers as the 2nd seed in Pool A.

A very exciting game against Springhill ended in a loss with a walk-off single in the bottom of the 6th for a 5-4 final. Springhill went on to defeat New Glasgow 2-1 in the final for the Championship.

Congratulations on a great season.
