2022 18U AA Mounties in Ladner
July 31, 2022
The Vancouver Mounties 18U AA team defeated a very strong team from Ladner in the Championship game today, 6-3.
Jaron Palaschuk started for the Mounties, allowing 2 runs on 2 hits in 5 innings. Ben Black closed out the game, striking out 5 batters while allowing 1 run (unearned) in 2 innings. It was an amazing display of pitching.
The Mounties also had some excellent defense from Kenta Milum at 3rd who fielded 2 hard-hit balls without making an error, as well as Morgan Fairweather, who caught the game, didn't allow a wild pitch or passed ball, and threw out a base-stealer at 2nd.
Offensively, the Mounties got hits from Lewis Sale, Ben Black, Jaron Palaschuk, Jack MacAulay, Morgan Fairweather, Kenta Milum, and Josh Epp. Josh's hit really put the icing on the cake, as it came in the top of the 7th with 2 outs and runners on 2nd and 3rd. Josh smacked an 0-2 pitch back up the middle, scoring both baserunners and putting the Mounties up 6-2 going into the bottom of the 7th. Ladner did get a run back in their half of the 7th, but were unable to close the 4-run deficit.
The Mounties will be playing in the Western Canadian Championship tournament August 19-21, against teams from Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, as well as the host team from Estevan, Saskatchewan.
