9U AA Bengals Place 3rd at Guelph Jamboree
Submitted By Jesse Edmunds on Mon 05 09, 22
The 9U AA Bengals travelled to Guelph this past weekend to take part in a mixed AA/AAA Jamboree style tournament to kick off 2022 Tournament play....

Friday night it was a 'battle of the cats', with the Bengals taking on the Kitchener Panthers #2 Team in an exhibition game. The Bengals started off HOT with the first 3 batters reaching base and Grady F delivering a GRAND SLAM from the 4-spot. It was a great game to kick off the festivities, with the Bengals staying hot throughout and cruising to a 25-3 victory. The much deserved game ball went to Grady F.

Saturday morning featured another 'battle of the cats', with the Bengals taking on the Kitchener Panthers #1 Team in their first official game of the tournament. The Bengals came out strong again, leading from the beginning and delivering a 16-6 win. Hunter E got the game ball after playing some solid D and delivering some extra base hits, including a triple to the hole during a Bengals rally

Saturday afternoon the Bengals took on the host Guelph Royals AAA Team (the 2021 8U AAA ICBA Champs). Their first action against a AAA team saw the AA Bengals fight hard but come up short. Final score was 14-7 for the Royals. Sawyer S earned the game ball for the Bengals with some big hits and a great attitude. The loss brought an end to a 14 game winning streak for the Bengals dating back to early in the 2021 season. 

Sunday at 2pm the Bengals got another taste of AAA play, taking on the Oshawa Legionaires - The 2021 8U AAA EOBA Champs. The Bengals jumped out to an early lead, and looked to have Oshawa on the ropes - leading 13-4 mid way through the game. SS James M was on FIRE turning plays throughout the game - earning himself the much deserved game ball. Unfortunately the Legionaires battled back, and in the bottom of the 7th they stole the W from the Bengals with a walk-off 14-13 win. The AA Bengals clearly showed they could hang with the AAA players, and they should all be very proud of themselves.

At 4pm on Sunday the Bengals took on the Riverside Royals to close on their tournament and secure a 3rd place finish. After losing back-to-back games for the first time, the Bengals got back to their dominating ways. Final score was 18-4, with Mason E earning the game ball for some stellar defence and big hits.


Way to go Bengals!
