It went down to the wire, but the West Coast Warriors hung on.

The Warriors defeated the Cardinal Contracting Cardinals 10-9 in Sunday’s 3B Division final during the opening tournament for the Whitehorse Co-ed Slo-pitch League.

The Warriors went through the weekend undefeated. Third place in 3B went to the Kaska Bears.

In the final for Division 2A, Robin Smith of the Great West Grizzlies busted open the game with a grand slam to extend the Grizzlies lead to 10-4 over HUB International Insurance Brokers.

While the Brokers did not go quietly, the Grizzlies did finish with a 17-9 victory.

In Division 2B play, Total North finished on top with a win over the BLC Group Knights.

The Nisutlin Trading Post Hawks took third in the division.

In the 3A Division final, the Jim Shockey Predators defeated Titanium Storage while BV Minerals finished in third.

Northwestel roared through the back door in Division 4A action to snatch first place from the undefeated Whitehorse Massage Therapy Scrubs with a decisive 20-11 victory. Dave’s Cleaning Crew finished in third.

Jiffy Lube defeated the Yukon College Thunder in the 4B final while Twin Peaks finished in third.

In something of a new format, the co-ed league had all the divisions playing their opening tournament on the same weekend this year instead of breaking them up over two weekends.

“We had a really good turn out for teams,” summarized league secretary/treasurer Meghan Stonehouse in an email. “Teams had a great time playing and good sportsmanship all around.

“Thanks to the umpires who gave up their weekend which left us with very few games that did not have an umpire present. It was a successful weekend and we are looking forward to the remainder of the season.”

Next up on the agenda for local slo-pitch tournaments is Dustball, scheduled for July 12, 13, 14 and 15.
