Oceanside’s two girls fast-pitch teams took to the field at Beban Park at the end of June for their year-end playdowns, and the Peewee Rage made it to the gold medal game.

The Peewee Rage, coached by Sheryl McNichol, went 4-2 overall and made it to the gold medal game, in which they came up on the short end of a 9-3 final against Cedar.

The Rage opened the tournament with a 14-13 loss to the Monsters from Nanaimo, and rebounded with a 19-9 romp over another Oceanside team. They followed that up with a lopsided win over Ladysmith. The Rage had to face Ladysmith again the same day, and won that one by one run.

“It was tight … it was a good game,” said McNichol.

In the semi-final, the Rage played the Monsters to a 9-9 tie in regulation, and won the game buy a run in extra innings.

“It was a good group of girls, and they held it together on Sunday and fought to the end,” said their coach.

Oceanside’s Rebels squirt team went 1-2 and settled for fifth place, but as has been the case all season, the team had a blast, said their coach Kevin Spicer.

“The girls were disappointed with the result but they supported each other and they had a lot of fun. The big thing is the girls really improved this season,” he said, adding, “their team play was excellent and as a group of girls they were great to coach.”
