Summerland Girls Softball Association hosted teams from the Okanagan, Similkameen, Kootenays, Prince George and the Lower Mainland last weekend at Dale Meadows Complex.
The Summerland Wild Things U13 team played the Vernon team at 8 a.m. Saturday to start the games with a win of 14 to 13.
Their second game was against Kelowna T-Birds which was close but it ended up as an 8 to 6 loss.
Prince George was the next team and once again the girls played well but just did not score enough runs, losing 12 to 6. On Sunday morning at 8 a.m. Cawston Kobau Koyotes played Summerland and once again the girls were winners by an 11 to 4 score.
They seem to like the morning games. They played well for the weekend but did not make the semi-finals as they ended up in fifth place.
The U14 semi-finalist was Cawston against Penticton Power, while Richmond played Kelowna T-Birds. Cawston won 15 to 4 and Richmond defeated Kelowna 12 to 1 so the finals were set.
The U14 final started at 3:30 p.m. and after five innings Cawston Kobau Koyotes were the champions by a 10 to 4 score over Richmond Strykers.
The Summerland Days Inn Scorch U19 was also playing last weekend at Dale Meadows with 13 teams in their side of the draw.
The team started the weekend at 8 a.m. Saturday, meeting the Fleetwood Bandits.
The girls played well with Erin English pitching and Odessa Cutt catching but they were defeated as the bats did not work well at that time of the morning.
The second and third games were played against Fleetwood Outlaws and then Langley.
Even with a beautiful home run in the Langley game by Erin English, the girls still lost both games.
The pitchers Devyn Blac, Erin English and Faith McDonald and catchers Devyn Blac, Odessa Cutt and Erin Gabriel all played well.
In the team’s last game against West Kootenay the girls got the win they had been looking for, winning 9 to 5.
The semi-finalist on the U19 side was Fleetwood Outlaws versus North Langley Impact while Delta Red Sox played Salmon Arm.
After a close-fought game Delta defeated Salmon Arm 8 to 5 and Fleetwood Outlaws won 13 to 3 over North Langley.
The final was a five inning game with Fleetwood winning 7 to 4 over Delta.
The public is invited to watch girls softball Monday to Thursday evenings at Dale Meadows #2 to the end of June.
