Stealth grabs first place in women’s fastball

One week of regular season play remains, with playoffs June 25-26 at Lewis Park

 

 

 

Stealth has moved into first place in the Comox Valley Women’s Fastball League following three straight victories.

Last week only had Tuesday’s games, which had Stealth defeating HDF on their home field. Some lumps and bruises showed just how resilient these ladies can be. The other match had the TULS taking the Slingerz with a 6-3 victory. Wednesday’s match ended with a forfeit from HDF to the Slingerz and a postponed game (due to rain) for the TULS and Stealth.

This past Tuesday had HDF winning against the TULS in Union Bay with a football score of 27-20.  Stealth was victorious against the Slingerz in a 12-2 game. Wednesday saw the Slingerz making a comeback and defeating the TULS 6-3 in an exciting match.  Stealth took some lumps and bumps in their match against HDF, but took the win with a score of 11-7.

The TULS and Stealth will have a doubleheader on Tuesday to make up for their missed game.

The CVWFL is hosting their 31st annual Charity Tournament this weekend (June 14-16) at Lewis Park. Games start Friday night and continue through to the Sunday afternoon final. Fans are invited to drop by the park and support the CVWFL as they support local charities that benefit women and children.

Stealth leads the league with a 5-2 record while HDF is second at 4-4 followed by TULS 3-4 and Slingerz 3-5. Next week is the final slate of regular season games. Playoffs go June 25-26 at Lewis. On June 25 1st vs. 4th at 6:30 p.m. and 2nd vs. 3rd at 8:30 p.m. On June 26 the Tuesday losers meet to decide third place at 6:30 p.m. followed by the championship final at 8:30 p.m.
