Comeback kids North Langley Shadows rally to win Kelowna tourney

The North Langley Shadows shone recently at Kelowna Spring Sizzle U14C Girls Minor Fastball Tournament.

The local squad was, in particular, celebrating a big comeback win against the determined New Westminster Royals in the championship game.

The Shadows went through the Saturday round robin portion of the tournament with a 2-1 record, being defeated by their nemesis, the Kelowna Red Devils.  

When playing in the 2014 U12C division tournament as the North Langley Royals, the local girls came back in the seventh inning to win the tournament against the Red Devils.  

The Shadows met the Red Devils again in the semifinals and through sheer effort and with three injured players, they edged Kelowna to advance to the title game against New Westminster.

New West came out strong, and it was a back and forth battle until the fourth inning when the Royals took a seemingly insurmountable six-run lead.

Undaunted, the Shadows battled all the way to the seventh inning, leaving everything they had on the field to bring the score to 14-13 in New West’s favor.

Facing a fresh pitcher in the bottom of the seventh, the Shadows rallied with a pair of runs to complete the comeback and successfully defend their title.

The Shadows are guided by head coach Steve Stefanyk, and assistant coaches Rob Price and John Anderson.
