ALVINSTON BATTLES HARD BUT FALL IN 2 TOO IRISH

by Bill Ryan

The 2 of 3 play in series, games 1 and 2 went on Sat and Sunday. Although the Irish won both games. The games were a few bounces from going either direction. In a high spirited game on Sat night, it was special teams that tilted the game to the Irish. In game 2 Sunday again special teams proved the difference. Alvinston saw a 4-2 lead evaporate for a final 7-4 Irish victory.

The Stratford Irish advance to the semi - finals and face the 1st place Elora Rocks for their efforts. Hats off to the killer bees, they came a long way since early season and things look bright for them moving forward.

Strathroy and Tillsonburg the 2 and 3 Seeds start their semi final series Friday at 7:30pm in Strathroy.
