Duncan Sox slide into third at tadpole Islands

Emerging victorious from a close thirdplace battle, the Duncan Red Sox claimed the bronze medal at the tadpole regional baseball championships at Evans Park last weekend.

The Red Sox edged Campbell River Blue 11-10 in the third-place game on Sunday afternoon. The championship was won by Carnarvon, who topped Peninsula 10-2 in the tournament final.

Weather repeatedly threatened the regional tournament throughout the weekend, but didn’t put a damper on the event.

"The tournament went great even with the rain," organizer Tina Baker said.

Game MVPs for the Duncan Red Sox included Jacob Cyr, Miles Pastuck, Carson Lesiuk, Christopher Merry, Josh Brennan and Luca Iorio. The Red Sox were coached by Shawn Cyr, Brad Lesiuk and Steve Poznecov.

MVPs for the Duncan Dodgers were Landon Day, Simon Baker, Kadin Griddlestone and Ashton Rota. The Dodgers were coached by Doug Cornett, Terry Griddlestone and Cam Erickson.
