2017 Bantam - Spot in "A" Division Earned
Submitted By Andrea Newman on Wednesday, August 02, 2017
U16 Lightning Bantam’s competed in PWSA Provincial qualifier in Cobourg, one of two locations this past weekend in a double knock out format. 

The team played tight, going 3-0, with wins over Vaughan, Whitby 2001 & Mississauga North. London then faced a tough Brantford opponent in the semi-final #1 losing 14-4. London then faced Guelph in semi-final #2 winning 8-2, advancing them into the Gold medal game to face Brantford for redemption.

London was down 6-0 in the first 3 innings. The team rallied through the 4th, 5th & 6th innings to regain the lead 10-8 and ended up holding on for the victory taking Gold in Cobourg Provincial qualifier.

London has now earned a spot in the “A” Division at the Provincial Championships being hosted in Chatham, August 11-13. Cheer us on as we continue our quest to represent Ontario in Eastern Canadian Championships the last week of August in PEI.
