Young Guns win dodgeball championship

Defeat Misfits in Comox Valley Sports & Social League's final game

It certainly wasn’t easy, but the Young Guns were locked and loaded just enough to out-snipe the rival Misfits and prevail as dodgeball champions.

The two teams battled to a 10-8 result, as the Young Guns took their second straight ‘A Tier’ championship in the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s Recreational Dodgeball League. Team captains Josh Maurice and Nick Zsiros continue to prove themselves hard to beat in dodgeball, excelling at the upper levels of the sport with a combination of elite dodging agility, great throwing arms and strategy.

The win capped a nearly undefeated season for the Young Guns in the 8-team tier. They rebounded from losing their final regular season game 10-8 to the 10 Phat Kids, before rattling off playoff wins vs. the Chuck ‘N Duckers, Team Ramrod and finally the Misfits.

In the ‘B Tier’ final, two newcomer teams took part in a fantastic back-and-forth battle that went down to the wire. The CV Kickers eventually emerged as champs, winning 10-9 over The Rock, whose only other loss of the season also came against the Kickers in the first week.

Registration is open until Jan. 5 for the CVSSC’s winter leagues of sports like Dodgeball, Volleyball, Indoor Soccer, Floor Hockey and Badminton.
