Bantam Duncan Angels take league championship

The Duncan Angels beat Layritz 11-10 in the championship game late last month to win the Greater Victoria Baseball Association’s bantam A title.

The Angels held a nine-run lead after the first two innings, but the bats suddenly went cold and the fielders made a few errors, and the score was tied by the middle of the sixth. A run in the bottom of the sixth put Duncan ahead once again, but Layritz tied it up in the seventh, forcing some clutch hitting by the Angels to win it.

"It was a really good season," coach Geoff Annandale said.

"It was a nice group of kids, and they came together pretty good."

The playoffs started with pool play, and the Angels finished second in the A pool to move on to the semifinal against Carnarvon, who won the B pool. The Angels beat Carnarvon in their semi, while Layritz got past Ladysmith in the other semi.
