Sun sets on season opener

After taking an early lead, then watching it slip away, the midget AAA Mustangs never got a chance to see if they could regain it

After taking an early lead, then watching it slip away, the midget AAA Cowichan Valley Mustangs never got a chance to see if they could regain it when their season opener against the Nanaimo Buccaneers was called due to darkness on Wednesday evening.

Cole Anderson pitched three strong innings and rookie Riley Windsor executed a perfect suicide squeeze to help the Mustangs to a 3-1 lead through four innings.

Not to be outplayed on their home field, the Buccaneers mounted a five-run comeback in the fifth inning, and the game was called after the Mustangs batted in the sixth, giving Nanaimo a 6-3 victory.

The Mustangs will be at home this weekend for four games at Evans Park. Cowichan will play host to Aldergrove on Saturday at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., and South Fraser on Sunday at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
