North Langley Dodgers capture community baseball tournament

The North Langley Dodgers capped a great year in style, during a tournament involving Langley and North Langley 11/12 Majors baseball teams.

In an all North Langley final, the Dodgers, who finished with a 12-2-2 overall record, clipped the Blue Jays 8-7.

It was a rematch of the first game of the tournament, in which the Dodgers rally from an 8-5 deficit to win 12-8, by scoring seven runs over the last two innings.

In their second game, the Dodgers defeated the Langley City Braves 5-2.  

The Dodgers’ last game of the round robin portion of the tournament was against the Langley City Dodgers.

Going into the fourth inning, the Dodgers trailed 9-6 to their Langley City namesakes.

But in the final two innings North Langley rallied to score four runs and win 10-9.

The victory gave the Dodgers an automatic bye into the championship game.  

The final was without a doubt the best game of the tournament.  

The Dodgers jumped out to an early 4-1 lead but saw it slip away and going into the sixth inning, the game was tied 7-7.  

North Langley then put two runners on and with a single to right field by Calob Gallowan, earned the win.

The Dodgers include Will Steensma, Jacob Deibert, Brenin Moore, Nathan Sych, Liam Jeffrey, Jamisen Walsh, Calob Gallawn, Jacob Deibert, Tyson Burgess, Tommy Millar, Leo Egger, and Payton Farnese.

The Dodgers are coached by Stosh Warzasek, Mark Burgess, and Ryan Jeffery.  

Warzasek, Burgess, and Jeffery have been named as North Langley’s coaches for the association’s 11/12 all-star team that’s hosting the 2014 Little League BC Provincial Championship at Walnut Grove Park from July 18-27.
