Penticton Power dominated to tournament victory

The Penticton Power dominated Quesnel to capture Vernon Summer Classic Fastball tournament

The Penticton Power-ed their way to a Vernon Summer Classic championship with a 10-1 win over Quesnel.

That sealed an undefeated run in six games for the squad. The tournament victory over Quesnel was a rematch as they opened with a 14-9 win over the northern B.C. team. The Power defeated West Kelowna 10-6, Cloverdale 21-5, West Kootenay 20-2 and Kelowna 9-5 in semifinal action.

“The girls played unreal all weekend,” said Power coach Dan Wilson. “They became a stronger team with every game. It was a weekend that we really needed. It was a good time for them to bond.”

The team, made up of 2003 and 2004-born players, have really started to gel.

The Power are 7-1 in their league and it is their goal to win it. Districts are in Vernon June 16 to 18.
