Dawgs 13U Wins 3rd Annual Dawgs Peewee Tournament
Congratulations to the Dawgs 13U team on winning the 3rd Annual Dawgs Peewee Tournament finishing the weekend with a 5-1 record. It is the 2nd time the Dawgs have won this tournament, and it was a battle from start to finish. The Dawgs started the tournament in round robin play with 2 wins over the South Jasper Place Jays 12-2 and the Lethbridge Jr. Dawgs 12-3 before suffering their first and only loss to the Regina White Sox 16-13. The Dawgs stormed back however with convincing wins over the Saskatoon Blue Jays 12-2 in the quarter finals, 14-0 over Cal Ripken in the semis, and in the finals the Dawgs were able to capture the Championship defeating the team that gave them their only loss in the round robin 9-5 over the Regina White Sox. It was an incredibly well played tournament by the Dawgs against some pretty tough competition. The Dawgs outscored their opposition over the course of the tournament 72-28.
The Dawgs were led by Conor Pote on the bump in the semi-finals winning by a score of 14-0 over the Cal Ripken team. Conor threw all 7 innings giving up 3 hits, 2 walks, 0 runs, and striking out 16 in dominating fashion. Offensively the Dawgs were carried by Conor Pote (1-3, 2B, 2R, RBI, 2BB, SB), Joey Gagnon (2-5, 2R, 2RBI, 3SB), Connor Makarus (2-2, 2R, RBI, 2BB, 3SB), Tag Layton (1-3, R, 3RBI), and Gavin Gosselin (2-3, R, RBI, BB, SB).
Owen Pote got his first start of the season for the Dawgs in the final and did not disappoint throwing 5 innings, giving up 7 hits, 4, earned runs, 1 walk, and 4 strikeouts for the 9-5 win. Rowan Robinson came in for the 6th and 7th innings to close the game out giving up 2 hits, 1 earned run, 1 walk, and 1 strikeout. Offensively the Dawgs had a strong showing with outstanding performances from Jack Lines (1-3, 2R, RBI, BB, 2SB), Jack Kenney (2-3, 3R, RBI, BB, 2SB), Conor Pote (1-4, R, 2RBI), Joey Gagnon (3-4, 2BI), Dawson Proud (2-3, RBI) and Jaxon Bekkering who scored twice and stole 4 bases.
Overall it was another great weekend for the Dawgs Peewee’s with contributions from every player on the team helping to come up with the victory. So far on the season in tournament play the Peewee's are 8-2 with a loss in the semi-finals at the 21 team Best in the Northwest Tournament in Spokane, WA (3-1) and a Championship in Okotoks (5-1). Their next and final tournament will take place July 14-16 in Kelowna, BC at the Valley of Champions.
Congratulation again on a great weekend.
