Indianbrook wins Mens Fastball Qualifier !
Millbrook, NS - It was a weekend of performing upsets and a weekend of playing hyped up ball for the Indianbrook mens team that earned this hard working team a championship victory last weekend at the NSMSRC mens fastball qualifier here in Millbrook in upsetting the home team by a score of 7-3 in the championship final. Playing upbeat and energized ball, a mixed team of young and veteran players gelled at the right time to overtake three other good calibre teams to claim the 2001 provincial mens crown and the right to represent Nova Scotia as the mens fastball team at the 2002 North American Indigenous Games set for Winnipeg, Manitoba from July 25th - August 4th, 2002.
The weekend saw four (4) quality mens fastball teams competing in a round robin schedule. Hosted by the Millbrook First Nation, the community played host to four strong Mikmaw teams from Eskasoni, Waycobah, Millbrook and Indianbrook.
After the preliminary games, it was Millbrook placing first with a record of 3-0, Waycobah Thunder at 2-1 and the Indianbrook squad placing third at 1-2. Eskasoni finished with a record of 3 losses, all of them by a close margin. With the tournament format eliminating the last place team, it was Millbrook, by virtue of their 3-0 record that earned a bye into the final to await the winner of the semi final game between Waycobah and Indianbrook. In prelimary play scores included Waycobah defeating Eskasoni 2-1, Millbrook pounding Indianbrook 8-0 and Waycobah losing to Millbrook by a 7-0 (default), Indianbrook then defeating Eskasoni 1-0 and Millbrook defeating Eskasoni by a score of 8-2.
In the semi final game between 2nd place Waycobah & 3rd place Indianbrook, it was a back and forth affair with both teams having an opportunity to win all the way through the game. After Indianbrooks early lead, Waycobah tied the score twice and went ahead in the 5th inning only to see Indianbrook come back to tie it again. The game went into extra innings deadlocked at 4-4 and in the tenth, Indianbrook exploded for 10 runs to win the contest in a blowout by a score of 14-4. Winning pitcher was Owen Marr in relief of Brian Paul.
The championship game saw a duel of the top team and the current
hottest team and Indianbrook stayed that way with an early 2-0 lead that they jumped into
with a 2 run homer from veteran Steve Gehue off of Phillip Martin in the top of the first.
It was a lead that Indianbrook wouldnt relinquish as once again, Owen Marr used a
mixture of speeds and pitches to keep the Millbrook bats silent for the most part and
earned the championship victory for his team. Indianbrook will now begin preparations and
fundraising necessary for their team to attend NAIG 2002. The NSMSRC will assist in
covering the uniforms and track suits for adult teams only. We will work to assist the
team in gathering information required to attend NAIG, and will meet with team coaches in
helping with the process. On the female side, it was the United Nations Womens
Fastball team that was the lone entry for the tournament, and as mentioned earlier,
because they were the lone entry, they have been granted the right to attend the 2002 NAIG
as the womens representative for Nova Scotia. Congratulations to both teams and good
