Neepawa Cubs are the 2017 SCBL Champions
Posted August 23, 2017
For the first time in 12 years the Neepawa Cubs are SCBL champions. They knocked off a destined Carberry Royals team who held a 2-1 series lead in the final. This was only to see the Cubs come roaring back to win the final two games to claim the championship in the 5th and final game. They took game 5 by a convincing 9-3 decision. Congrats to the Neepawa Cubs and to Carberry on a great run in the playoffs.
Also on the weekend Austin A's were in Rivers for the Senior A Provincial championship. They were short staffed and picked up Zac Yandeau and Carter Schettler from Plumas as well as Daylan Laramee and Rod McLeod from Portage. Unfortunately they lost both in the double knockout tourney. 3-0 to the eventual champion Rivers Comets on Friday night and a gutsy extra inning loss to Clearwater Saturday morning 8-6.
This ends another successfull SCBL season. Everyone have a great, healthy offseason and we will see you in 2018!
