North Island bantams earn doubleheader split

Parksville players hit, pitch AAA baseball squad to win; Royals return home in BCPBL play after rainout in Vancouver

Jaxon Ackerman, one of four Parksville players on the team, threw a complete game as the North Island Royals AAA baseball squad beat Cowichan Valley 6-2 to earn a split of their league doubleheader Sunday in Duncan.

Brandon Nicoll, another of the four local members of the team, belted a two-run home run as the Royals bounced back from a 6-0 loss in the opener.

Brandon Snyder and Trevor Nicoll are the other Parksville players on the team, which is made up of players from across the North Island and Powell River.

The win left the Royals with a 15-14 league record going into a game Tuesday in Nanaimo. The squad travels to Victoria this Sunday for a doubleheader to wrap up the regular season.

Meanwhile, the Royals return home Sunday to host the Langley Blaze in a pair of league games beginning at 12:15 p.m. at Springwood Park in Parksville.

The team will carry a two-game winning streak into Sunday’s doubleheader, following wins of 9-0 at Nanaimo last Wednesday and a 3-1 victory over the Victoria Eagles the previous Sunday in Parksville.
