Day 1 Recap - Wednesday, August 9th

Victoria Devils (6-2) over the Southside Slammers

Southside Slammers (2-1) over the Red Deer Rage

Day one from Delta B.C. is in the books for the Southside Slammers.

In the first game against the Victoria Devils, Head Coach Trent Walter said nerves may have played a factor in the 6-2 loss with a few errors leading to four runs. In game two the Slammers would shake off those nerves and play a tremendous game of defense beating the Red Deer Rage 2-1. The Slammer will look to carry that momentum into day two.


The Southside Slammers U-16 girls softball team starts their quest to become national champions on Wednesday afternoon in Delta, B.C.

After a tremendous inaugural season that saw the girls win two of four tournaments and come close to winning the Regina league, the team is excited to get things underway.

"It was a great first season for us and its gone extremely well," explained Head Coach Trent Walter. "Its going to be difficult at nationals and there will definitely be some challenges."

"At a national event there's no doubt it's going to be a high level of competition and I think we can compete. Hopefully we can push some games and get in at the end of the day. When its all said and done, the girls are going to compete well and have a good experience."

"They truly are a team, its been an exciting year for us and they've come together really well."
