Mosquito League minor baseball teams both enter playoff week

Cowichan Lake had two Mosquito League minor baseball teams enter the sudden death playoffs, last weekend.

Cowichan Lake had two Mosquito League minor baseball teams enter the sudden death playoffs, last weekend.

Their participation in the sudden death playoffs came about after a successful run in a round robin tournament.

On Sunday, June 19, both the Lake Cowichan Jays and the Lake Cowichan Red Necks entered the playoffs; the Jays playing in Chemainus and the Red Necks playing in Duncan.

The Red Necks lost their game 12-8, eliminating them from the playoffs.

“It was a good game. We made a few errors that cost them, but it was a good game,” coach Ryan Rai said.

The Jays won their game, and are continuing their playoff run Tuesday, June 21, in Ladysmith. No subsequent games will be played in Lake Cowichan.

That is, unless the Jays lose their Tuesday game, after which time Rai said that they could play a fun home game against the Red Necks, Saturday, June 25.

Next weekend will see all local league teams head out to Lake Cowichan’s minor baseball field at Centennial Park, where they will take part in their year-end wrap-up.

The wrap-up will include activities and games throughout the weekend. On Sunday, June 26, at 3 p.m., awards will be awarded to players at the baseball field. If weather doesn’t agree with this plan, the awards will be handed out in the Centennial Hall.
