Bantam Major Titans Crowned Victoria Day Champions!
Over Victoria Day weekend, the Bantam Major Titans were in Simcoe for a 12-team A & Under tournament.  The Titans began round-robin play late Friday evening with a 4-3 win over the Innisfill Cardinals.  They followed up on Saturday with a 4-0 victory over the Guelph Royals and a 6-6 draw with the WOBA Bulls, placing them in a statistical tie at the top of their pool.  In the quarterfinals on Sunday, the Titans defeated the Oakville A’s 18-3, followed by a semifinal victory over the Ancaster Diamondbacks 6-3.

This set up a rematch with the only other undefeated team—the WOBA Bulls—in the finals.   In windy and wet conditions, the Titans ran out to a 5-1 lead.  After allowing WOBA to tie the game at 5 in the 4th inning, the Titans pushed ahead to win 8-5.  They captured a trophy in their first tournament of the year with a 5-0-1 record.
