You can add the name of another local rep team that stepped up to the plate at their Island finals and earned themselves a berth in the B.C.’s.

In the mix at the Peewee AA Island championships in Duncan last weekend, the Oceanside Reds rep team of 12 and 13 year olds went 4-0 on the weekend with the smallest margin of victory by eight runs, posting big wins over Victoria (16-6), Comox (18-6) and Campbell River (9-1), before blasting the Cowichan Thunder 18-7 in the gold medal game.

“It was a complete team effort,” said proud coach Kurt Bowles.

BATTER UP:  The Reds will now take their game up the road to Comox Aug. 1-5 for the Peewee AA provincials.
