Riverhawk Rookie OBA Provincial Finalists
Congratulations to the Rookie OBA Alvinston Riverhawks on a great weekend of baseball in the Kingsville OBA C Championship.They pulled out all the stops. After winning there two first games against Essex and Woodslee on Friday and Saturday morning, the boys played under the lights in the feature game which was a 9 inning, 2 1/2 hour battle against the Kingsville Knights with the winner taking top seed in the finals. Unfortunately the Knights scored a run in the 9th inning with a close play at the plate to win 9-8. The Riverhawks battled back the next day with a win over Dorchester to set them up in finals once again with the Knights. The rookies held there own with Kingsville in the finals having the score tied through the 5 innings. The Knights eventually got 3 runs in the 6th and held on for the victory. It was a great year for boys who played there hearts out when needed most, they have much to be proud of and was the first time Alvinston participated in the OBA Final game. GREAT JOB BOYS!
