North Langley’s Wade Alton goes for the bunt during a Sunday morning game against South Vancouver in Walnut Grove Community Park where the B.C. Little League provincial championship tournament is underway.

Frustrating start for Little Leaguers

Losses for North Langley players as championships get underway

It was a frustrating start to the B.C. Little League provincial championship tournament for the North Langley team hosting the event, who dropped their first two games on Saturday and Sunday, losing 7-1 to Beacon Hill and 7-0 to South Vancouver in action at Walnut Grove Community Park.

The round-robin Majors (ages 11 and 12) tournament will wrap up Sunday, July 27.

In all, seven teams are fighting for the right to represent B.C. at the Canadian national Little League championships in Valleyfield, Que. from Aug. 1 to 10.

The winner of that tournament will represent Canada at the famed Little League International World Series in Williamsport, Pa.

Last year saw Ottawa’s East Nepean break B.C.’s eight-year reign as the Canadian representative at the World Series.

North Langley automatically qualified as the host team of the B.C. Championships, while White Rock — which plays in the same district — won the district championship with a victory over Whalley.

The Langley All-Stars fell in the semifinals to Whalley.
