Congrats to our 13U KMBA Cardinals ALL Ontario OBA CHAMPS!
A total team effort all weekend. The boys faced a highly seeded Wyoming team from western counties Fri and fell 6-5 in a tough game. After accepting we were going the long way to championship Sunday, the team played 3 games Sat, starting at 8 am and finishing the day at 830 PM winning them all, 12-2 over Clinton, 11-2 over Essex and 17-14 over Dresden. A little birthday mojo from Colton sure helped!! The wins earned
them a spot to play Sunday and goal 1 was accomplished. Sun morn had the Cards play a strong Lucan -Ilderton team who play in the London loop, but the boys came away with a close 5-1 win. With 3 teams remaining, Wyoming puilled Kincardine's name out of a hat in a draw for the bye. This meant the Cards would play Lucan -Ilderton again who had just taken down the strong Wyoming team. The Cards came out hot scoring 4 runs in the first. Lucan played consitently well and rallied late but the hometown boys held on and took home the title 14-8. A second provincial title (2021, 2023) to add along with 2 silvers for this squad (2019, 2022) A year of a lot of learning, development, FUN and great memories made! Well done guys--it took all 12 of you! Rick, Brett, Cade, Colt, Lenny, Lane, Tyler, Rhys, Matty, Ben, Darren and Lucas.
