Aldergrove Dodgers fall in ‘Wild Card’ finale

Aldergrove Bantam AAA Dodgers took it almost all the way before they were eliminated from the provincials at the Wild Card Tournament Sunday

The Aldergrove Bantam AAA Dodgers took it almost all the way before they were eliminated from the provincials at the Wild Card Tournament on Sunday.

The double knockout tourney saw the Dodgers lose to the Cowichan Valley boys on Sunday, a team which the Dodgers had beat on opening day at Aldergrove Athletic Park.

The Aldergrove host team had a 4-2 win over Cowichan Valley on Friday, July 24 but lost their second game Saturday against the Nanaimo Pirates, 13-3. The Dodgers followed that with a 3-2 win over Kamloops Riverdogs later that day, setting them up against Cowichan Valley again on Sunday.

Cowichan Valley’s final game Sunday against Nanaimo was rained out so the deciding game for a provincials berth was postponed until Monday at Nanaimo’s field.

The Vancouver Community team was the only one to win all three of their games, putting them automatically into the provincials berth. Vancouver defeated Nanaimo 3-2, Richmond Chuckers 9-7, and Victoria Red 11-5.

The Aldergrove Bantam AAA Dodgers team is #2 Brandon O’Grady, #21 Mike Saulter, #27 Tyrell Rogers, #24 Caleb Neilsen, #17 Brett Jackson, #5 Sol Michaud, #20 Jacob Simons, #7 Brady Lamsden, #12 Jacob Stebbings, #32 Josh Krahn, #10 Braden Warbeston, and coaches Kevin Stebbings and Troy Michaud.
