Bulldogs Just Miss at Chance to Repeat

The Burnaby Bulldogs came away with a Silver Medal at the recent Baseball Canada Senior Championships in Miramishi, NB.

The Bulldogs, looking to be the first team to repeat since 2004 – 2005, when the Dartmouth Moosehead Dry (NS) won back to back titles, fell just short by losing in the Gold Medal Game to a very strong Windsor Stars club from Ontario.

The ‘Dogs finished the round robin up with a 3 and 1 record after wins against the Chatham Ironmen (Hosts) 3 - 2, the Brandon Marlins (MB) 10 - 0 and the Halifax Canadians (NS#2) 5 to 1, before losing to Windsor 6 to 4 to close out the preliminary round.

In the Quarter Finals, the Bulldogs came up against the St. Johns Capitals from Newfoundland.  Always a scrappy team, the Capitals battled hard until the ‘Dogs pulled away in the second half to win 7 – 0.

The Semi Finals saw a rematch between the Bulldogs and the Host Chatham Ironmen before a standing room only crowd announced at over 3500 people.  In a very close game, Burnaby managed to dampen the spirits of the partisan crowd by winning 4 to 1 and booking a spot in the final with defending a championship on their minds.

After a hurricane delay that pushed the Gold Medal game back to Monday evening, the Bulldogs lost their momentum and fell short of their goal following an 8 to 2 lose to a deserving and classy Windsor team.

The Bulldogs would like to thank the entire organizing committee and the host Ironmen for a tremendous job of hosting Canada’s top championship
