Midget Tigers claw back only to lose to Kelowna

The SOMBA Tigers tough battle to Kelowna in midget 2A final

The SOMBA Tigers season ended with a 13-10 loss to Kelowna in the South Okanagan midget 2A final on June 21. Tigers coach Grant Konno said it was a “very exciting game.”

“We had to fight back, being down 9-3 after three innings,” said Konno.

The Tigers scored three runs in the fourth and four in the sixth to trail 11-10. Kelowna added two runs in the sixth and seventh.

“In the bottom of the seventh we had one on second and couldn’t score,” said Konno. “We had great pitching from Bradley Fleming, Ryan Konno and last game MVP Taylor Kanke.”

Jared Samuelson earned MVP honors Saturday after he hit a double and triple. Danny Grant also hit a double for the Tigers.
