The Thunder earned the U16/U19 title in Moose Jaw and District Minor Girls Fastball yesterday afternoon at Optimist Park.

They won 12-2 in the final over the Nitro. Thunder head coach Todd Usher was happy with the way they played all year.

“They played as a team, they played great,” Usher said. “Everyone did something. They all hit, they all made a play in the field, they all pulled for each other and they all got along great. It was a great group of kids and they all played together as a team and I’m proud of every one of them.”

It was a quick season for the house league, with games not getting underway on the season until July 6. COVID-19 related regulations had the teams unable to even practice together until close to the end of June.

“It was a good year, that being said, with the COVID and being a very compressed schedule, it went by really quick,” he said. “It was a pleasure to coach these kids. They were a very good group of kids.”

The Thunder won the division with a 7-2-1 record in the regular season, scoring 73 runs and allowing a league-low 38 runs against. The Nitro were in second place with a 6-3-1 record.

The Thunder won over the Shadow 11-3 Saturday evening to get the bye into the final, and had won 6-0 over the Nitro Saturday morning in their first game of the playoff.
