The Heat was on!

U16

The Brandon Heat (at left) won the provincial under-16 girls softball championship on July 6 at the John Blumberg Sports Complex in Winnipeg with a 9-8 victory over Neepawa. In round-robin play, the Heat won 10-3 against Steinbach, lost 10-3 to Southdale and beat Oxford Heights 17-3, finishing as runner-up in Pool B to advance to the playoff round. In the quarter-final, Sydney Cobbe was the winning pitcher in a 9-4 victory over Seine River.

In the semi-final, Darian Compton threw seven strikeouts, while she and Danielle Woychyshyn went two-for-three at the plate to defeat Parkland 2-1. In the gold medal victory against Neepawa, Sydney Cobbe struck out seven while Darian Compton, Brianne Dubois (including winning RBI), and Megan Earl each went three-for-four at the plate. Nicole Frederiksen went two-for-three.

U14B

The Brandon Heat (at right) won gold at the U14B provincial softball championships held in Steinbach July 11-13. Brandon had close games in round robin play Friday and Saturday with wins over Carmen and MacDonald and a loss to Mitchell put Brandon in a three-way tie for first. Brandon narrowly edged Mitchell to advance to Sunday’s playoff.

On Sunday, Brandon’s bats came alive, combined with dominating pitching and a great defensive effort. Brandon sailed through the playoffs beating Steinbach 9-1 in the quarter finals, Southdale 11- 3 in the semi-finals and Altona 10-2 in the finals. It makes a clean sweep of provincial gold medals for Brandon Heat teams as U10, U12 and U16 won weeks earlier.

U12B

The U12B Brandon Heat softball team (at right) went undefeated this season, topping it off by winning the provincial championships in Winnipeg July 4-6. The Heat were perfect in round robin play before knocking off an undefeated Roblin team in the semi-finals 9-5 and then beating an undefeated Winkler team in the gold medal game 9-5.

The championship run was truly a team effort with every member digging in to contribute. This is the second straight year a Brandon team has taken the U12 B provincial title.
