Victoria, BC (ISN) – Topaz Park in Victoria was the venue for the end of season tournament last weekend in the Lower Island Mixed Fastball League with eleven teams competing in the Irene Lawrence Memorial Hibernation Tournament.
The Ross Bay Vipers victory over the Strathcona Salts in the semis pitted them in the final against the Victoria Athletics who had defeated Sooke in their semi-final match.
Sean McMicking’s top pitching wasn’t enough to hold off the Athletics as they continued their winning season with a runaway 7-1 victory over the Vipers on Sunday afternoon.
Here are a few photos from the final game from ISN photographer Doug Bain:
