Seeco Slammers suffer first loss of season

Mariners now the only undefeated team in men's slo-pitch league




The ranks of the undefeated teams in the Comox Men’s Slo-Pitch League dwindled to one last week.

The Mariners continued their roll in Tier 1, running their record to a perfect 9-0 as they destroyed the Outlaws 25-4 and beat the Heaters 17-9. Sauced won a pair of games as they prevailed 17-13 over Smokin Woody’s and outlasted the Grinders 18-14.

The Heaters and Grinders played to a 17-17 tie. In the lowest scoring game of the season the Woody’s prevailed 3-1 over the Outlaws.

In Tier 2 action the Seeco Slammers finally tasted defeat as the Ballers were 21-16 winners.  The Slammers beat the Coco Loco’s 13-7 to run their record to 7-1. In what probably was the highest scoring game of the year the Holdups trashed the Cruisers 32-9.

Coco Loco’s were 7-4 winners over the Holdups. The Jays won both of their games easily, 24-7 against the Cruisers and 17-5 over the Misfits. The Steamers also won a pair, bumping the Ballers 8-6 and doubling the Cruisers 18-9.
