Bantam pick up bronze at B.C. champs

The Richmond Bantam AA baseball team finished third at the provincial championships in Kelowna last weekend.

Richmond was 3-1 in round-robin play, all three wins decided by a single run.

The locals edged Kelowna 5-4 in the first game, with pitcher Daniel Hatud keeping the opposition off the scoresheet for four innings. Jom campion went 3 for 4 at the plate.

A rainout forced Richmond to play back-to-back games against North Delta and Port Coquitlam, 5-4 and 6-5 victories. Richmond had a five-run lead against Port Coquitlam, but needed an extra inning to win the game. Jordan Forch hit a home run and Parker Forch was solid at the plate and in the field and Colin Cookhouse called a good game behind the plate.

Meanwhile, the Richmond Chuckers are in Edmonton for the start of the Western Canadian Midget AAA championships as Team B.C. The team's first game is Friday at 9 a.m. against Alberta. Manitoba, Saskatchewan and host Edmonton Northstars are also in the competition, with the gold medal game on Sunday.

Bradstock keys awesome aerial attack

Richmond's junior bantam football team put on quite a display of its aerial strength Sunday in Delta.

The local Raiders wente 1-2 in a pre-season tournament, but on their first play of the season surprised tournament-favourite North Delta with a 30-yard pass. Throughout the tournament, quarterback Ryan Bradstock fearlessly launched the ball despite the opposition's hard-charging defense. Bradstock twice connected to Cody Brown on long bombs, one of which Brown stretched to an overall gain of 80 yards before being tackled on the five yard line. Bradstock also hit Adam Chorney twice for 30 yard gains.


Werk's goal disallowed

Things could have been a lot different had Jaymes Werk's goal counted.

Instead, his last-second goal for the Richmond Roadrunners against the Coquitlam Adanacs in the semifinals of last week's B.C. Midget A2 Division lacrosse championships was disallowed, ending Richmond's title hopes.

Werk also scored earlier in the game.

Richmond lost the third-place game 16-8 to Port Moody.
