North Langley Devils cap season with B.C. title

The team of Devils make North Langley softball history earlier this week.

The North Langley Devils won the U10 provincial girls softball championship for the first time in the 21-year history of the year-end U10 tournament.

In the championship final late Monday afternoon at Squint Lake Park in Burnaby, the Devils beat the Ridge Meadows Pride 04 by a 7-0 count.

The victorious Devils were backed by a six inning no-hitter by Maya Moreno.

The Devils walked through the round robin with four consecutive victories.

Along the way, they beat the Ridge Meadows Pride 05, Langford Lightning, SSWR Thunder and the South Delta Angels.

With the top seed in the 19 team tournament all wrapped up, the Devils knocked off SSWR again in the first playoff game 13-0, and followed that victory with an 11-1 win over North Surrey.

The Devils gave up five runs total in the entire seven game tournament.

“Timely hitting and unbelievable defence kept the competition off guard,” said Trevor Moreno, one of the Devils’ coaches.

The Devils compiled a 41-5 record on the season, medaling in four out of five tournaments, and winning three of them outright.

“This is a great accomplishment for North Langley Softball,” Moreno said.
