Mounties Place Third in SUMMER Celebration Tournament! The Vancouver Mounties were eliminated from the tournament losing in the semi finals 13-9 to the Kent Bulldogs Blue team. With the loss they placed 3rd in the 8 team tournament. The Mounties were awful early in the game allowing 10 runs in the first two innings contributed by 8 Mountie errors. The Mounties fought back to close the gap to 13 to 9, had momentum and were coming back but the game was called due to time limit after 5 innings of play. The Mounties were confident that if the game would have went all 7 they would have won but learned another tough lesson today that if you are not ready to compete, a game can be over in seconds.
Earlier in the day in the quarter finals the Mounties defeated the Sandberg Baseball Club 7 - 0 in a quick affair to advance to the Semis.
Bantam AAA Scores Sunday July 13th: Burnaby Braves 2 @ Nanaimo Pirates 3 Nanaimo Pirates 14 @ Burnaby Braves 3 White Rock Tritons 1 @ Abbotsford Angels 2 (Extra Innings) White Rock Tritons 6 @ Abbotsford Angels 2
Mounties and Chuckers tied for last Provincial Spot! The Vancouver Mounties and Richmond are dead even in the race for the last Provincial Spot. Both teams sport 18 - 15 records with the Mounties holding the all important tie breaker in the season series between the two teams.
The Mounties now control their own destiny and a win in their last game against Ridge Meadows on Wednesday night will vault them past the Wild Card and into the last Provincial spot. Richmond finishes up against Vancouver Community and will need a win and a Mountie loss to avoid the Wild Card Tournament.

Mounties Top Pool in Summer Celebration! The Vancouver Mounties went undefeated in scorching 91 degree temperatures defeating the Gametime Baseball Club 11 - 8 in their opening game and then immediately right after handed the Puget Sound Patriots a 11 - 0 mercy drubbing.
It was another good day not to follow the unwritten rules of baseball as the Mounties and the Bulldogs White Baseball Club had identical 2 and 0 records and both had given up the exact same amount of 8 runs. So the next tie breaker was total runs for and the Mounties topped the Bulldogs in that category 22 to 19.
The number 1 seed Mounties open up the quarter finals vs. the number 8 seeded Sandberg Baseball Club. The winner of that game will play the winner between number 4 seed Bulldogs Blue and number 5 seed Victoria Black Eagles.
On the other side of the bracket number 3 seed Reality Sports faces off against the number 6 seed Gametime Baseball Club, with the winner of that game playing the winner of the number 2 seed Bulldogs White and number 7 seed Puget Sound Patriots.
The weather will once again play a factor today once again piercing the 90 degree mark. It will be a test for the 11 Mountie players and the rest of the teams to see if they can keep hydrated as it will take 3 games to win the tournament.

In the event that the Mounties make the Provincials playing in this tournament with the temperatures forecast in the low 30s all weekend will certainly give the boys a feel and some preparation for what it could be like up in Rutland in early August.
