No practices as a team. And key players who couldn’t compete due to injuries, Grads or other commitments. Those are the obstacles the 18U Midgets faced as they entered the Langley Blaze tournament.

But they overcame, battled, and did a remarkable job under the circumstances.

Dylan Emmons from Vernon threw a beauty against Victoria but the 18U bats weren’t warmed up in their opener. “It’s the best game we’ve played this year,” said Mariners coach Mike Chewpoy, who was impressed with Emmons.

It took three days of batting practice for the 18U’s to get going at the plate but they finished strong. Dan Rogers, Donovan Moorman, Will Beh and Christian Deane paced the offence.

Meanwhile, Beh stumbled on the mound in the first inning against the Edmonton Prospects, when an error on a rundown opened the door for three runs, but bounced back, showing lots of heart, and threw a complete game.

Tyler Lawson started against the Blaze and also competed with courage. Langley has a platoon of good hitters but Tyler refused to give in, despite an untimely balk that helped the Blaze score six runs in the second inning. Deane threw the last two and a third, delivering pop on his fastball and an excellent curveball.

Liam Campbell showed his durability, catching both ends of the doubleheader, outfielder Riley Ens corralled two outstanding catches, Ryan West made a pro play charging a bunt, Carter Bogart threw well in relief, Sean Donnelly worked hard, and Moorman, who was solid at shortstop, also turned in a blue chip job at first base after he hurt his throwing arm and couldn’t pitch.

All in all, the 18u’s got better every game and showed excellent potential. All they need is more practice time and a full lineup.
