Rain washes out Saturday action, District 3 title decided Monday

White Rock’s 11/12 Majors ball club was one game away from a district title Sunday, after a 6-1 win over North Langley Sunday at South Surrey Athletic Park sent them into the championship game.

White Rock’s Sam Shoemaker was on the mound Sunday, pitching a complete game.

“A complete game is fairly unusual in Little League, but he stayed under his pitch count., said White Rock coach Chuck Westgard. “He was great out there.”

While there was little in the way of offence to speak of – many of the game’s runs came off errors and other miscues – White Rock’s Marc Ashford did hit a home run to lead the team to the win.

The title game – in which the winner advances to provincials next week in Victoria – between White Rock and Langley will be played Monday evening.

It was originally slated to be played Sunday, but torrential rains washed out all games Saturday, thus pushing back the tournament schedule back one day.
