Rookie A Cubs Win City Championship

Updated Sunday April 24, 2016 by Kanata Little League.

What an ending to an amazing season! The Rookie A Cubs and the South Ottawa Blues met 4 times over the course of a 20 game summer season. The wins were split 2 games apiece. Those 2 losses were the only losses experienced by the Rookie A Cubs all summer. The City Championship was 5th meeting of the district's top 2 teams and the season-series rubber-match.

The Cubs gave up 5 runs in the top of the 1st inning and looked like they were feeling the pressure of a championship game. But they came back with 5 runs of their own as the bats lit up in the bottom of the 1st. The defense steadied and the Cubs held the Blues to just 4 more runs over the next 4 innings. The bats kept working as they have all season and the Cubs put another 10 runs on the board to make the final 15-9 after 5 innings, winning the City Championship.

It was a magical season for the boys which saw them:

  • Go 11-1 in the Interlock summer season
  • Win the Brockville Rookie Tournament, scoring 62 runs while only giving up 4 runs over 3 games
  • Win the Rookie A division of the Scott Tokessy Memorial Gold Glove Tournament
  • Win the City Championship

Congratulations Rookie A Cubs!
