Metchosin Juniors Continue Unbeaten Season
METCHOSIN, BC -- West Shore’s junior cricketers continued their winning ways over the weekend with a 27-run victory over Oak Bay Islanders at the Metchosin Cricket Ground Saturday. Captain Sam won the toss and chose to set the pace with the bats. Midway through the 12-over innings, the boundaries started to appear, with James and Sam each finding the rope and setting a score of 74. In the second innings, brothers Zach and Marcus opened the batting for the visitors, but Metchosin’s bowlers were quick to benefit from four quick wickets in less than two overs. Emma and Sarah soon took up the torch as the last hope for Oak Bay, but despite some smart and aggressive running, they came up short in the end.
Next up is a bye-week for Metchosin, while Oak Bay prepares for a visit to Windsor Park from the Victoria Gulls. Also on tap this weekend, the Saanich Aces will visit the expansion Peninsula Bulldogs at Iroquois Park in Sidney.

Modern Attendance Record
2 June 2019 - Metchosin, BC - The SIYCL 2019 junior cricket season opened on a record six fronts this past weekend, with the new addition of Peninsula Junior Cricket Club in Sidney. Between the six clubs, over 50 players took part in the opening-weekend sessions. On Saturday morning, novice and veteran players assembled at Beacon Hill Park, Iroquois Park in Sidney, and the Cowichan CC Ground in Shawnigan Lake. Sunday practice was then held at Windsor Park in Oak Bay, while at the Metchosin Cricket Ground the Stingers opened the season with a 54-33 win over the Gekkos. This brought the total number of opening-day participants to 51, setting a modern record. "It's a great leap forward." said SIYCL General Manager Rick Gardner. "Our very first session in 2013 we had exactly one player; and he wasn't family of either of the coaches; We've come a long way." Gardner credits the support of parents and community sponsors with the growth of the league. "Kids come, they play, and they love it. It's good for the kids to be outside, and the parents appreciate the supportive atmosphere." Registration in the SIYCL remains open until the end of July.
