There was no stopping the train coming out of LaSalle as the Villanova Wildcats baseball team beat Wallaceburg District 13-1 Tuesday afternoon. "Great team win." said head coach Tom Beale. "I think this game just solidified how much depth we have."
Brendan Leblanc hit a homerun for the Wildcats who will compete at the OFSAA regionals beginning June 1st at Lacasse Park. "Our pitching was solid" said Beale whose staff gave up four hits against Wallaceburg. Here's the game ending strikeout by Owen Findlay.
The victory marks the first time Villanova has won both WECSSAA and SWOSSA in the same season.
"Villanova to me is a very good team. They have potential to do real well in this tournament." said tournament convenor and St. Anne head coach Steve Burke.
The two-day playoff is being hosted by St. Anne, who will be one of 18 teams competing. "We're excited to host because there's opportunity to play against teams from other areas." Said Burke.
Games will be played at both Lacasse Park and Mic Mac Park June 1st and 2nd.
