Kelowna, BC) on the Sunday rematch. Monster scattered 8 hits over 7 innings, surrendering 2 runs with 4 strike outs.  At the plate the Coyotes were led by Brady Guimond (INF, Fr. Saskatoon, Sk) who was 2-3 with 2 runs scored.  Aidan Mcvea was 1-2 with a 1bb.

“Kyle struggled early with his control, but he settled in nicely and made some excellent pitches when he needed.  The defense played well and kept us in front after the 1st.  The pitching staff continues to give us a chance to win, if our hitting comes around we should be in good shape.”  -Head Coach Geoff White

Monster picked up his first CCBC win with a 3-2 Complete game victory over PBA

The second game was another very good pitching performance from Coyotes starter Pete Tollenaar(RHP, Jr. Ft McMurray, AB) Tollenaar went 6 strong innings giving up only 2 hits, 0 runs and 5 punch outs.   Brandon Klym had a clean 7th inning to wrap up a solid 7-0 victory.  Reed Quaal led the Coyote attack with a 1-2 game with 3 runs scored.  Stefan Mckee had 3 RBI, 2 in the 6th to put the game away.

Tollenaar threw 6 shut out innings in 7-0 victory over TRU

“Once again our pitchers set the tone for the game.  Pete was competing in the zone and keeping TRU off the base paths, they are an aggressive team and our defense and pitching did a nice job to control them.  At the plate we had some improved success and took advantage of 6 TRU walks.  I still believe we can be much better with our bats.” —Head Coach Geoff White

Coyotes Split with Wolfpack

Lethbridge Weekend Snowed Out

Weather has again played games on the CCBC

Once again weather has plagued the CCBC.  With current weather and field conditions and forecasted weather the OC Coyotes will not make the trip to Lethbridge this weekend.  These games will be rescheduled for April 27th and 28th.

Instead of Lethbridge, the Coyotes will get to work this weekend as they will travel to Kamloops to take on TRU Friday night @ 7:00pm @ Norbrock Stadium, and match up again Sunday @ 4:00pm @ Norbrock Stadium.  Norbrock stadium this weekend is hosting the Best of the West High School tournament so field times were limited.

“I am glad we are playing games this weekend,we have been playing well lately, and I want to keep our momentum going.  Weather has been ruining schedules all over the Pacific Northwest, we are trying to make the most of it, we are not losing the PBA set and getting two games back.” –Head Coach Geoff White

Weather Washes out Sunday

Elks Stadium played host to the CCBC March 25-27. Rain washed out Sunday's games

The Coyotes were washed out at Elks Stadium on Sunday.  With four games on the schedule snow, sleet, and rain ended the weekend for the five CCBC teams.

“After scrambling to get this weekend set up last minute due to field conditions at other locations, it is unfortunate to have weather kick us off the field.  If Friday and Saturday are any indication of how close games are going to be, it should be an exciting and close season.” Head Coach Geoff White

The Coyotes will now head to Lethbridge, Alberta where the University of Calgary Dinos will join them for a 4 game weekend at Llyod Nolan Stadium.

The league will try to reschedule these games for a later date.  Check the schedule page soon for updates

Coyotes Fall in Close game with University of Calgary

The Coyotes lost a tight game to the University of Calgary 2-1.  Corey Wood (Sr. RHP, Campbell River, BC) struggled early but settled in and held down Calgary.  Wood would go the entire game 7IP,2 runs, 3 hits, 8k.  U of C starter Joel Holland kept the Coyotes bats quiet for 5 innings before turning the ball over to the bullpen that held the game down.

Guimond was 3-3 with 2 doubles in a 2-1 loss to Calgary

At the plate, Brady Guimond was 3-3 with two doubles, while Reid Fischer would score the only run after being walked in the first frame.

“Corey struggled with his command early in the game, but settled in nicely.  He really showed his veteran poise to really bare down and make quality pitches when he needed.  Calgary threatened a couple of times, but Corey really battled tonight to give us a chance.  It is nice to see Corey and Rodway really set the table for our younger pitchers and how to go about business on the mound.  The defense also backed up Corey tonight and made some big plays to keep the game close.  If we can execute at the plate better we are going to have success.”  Head Coach Geoff White

Coyotes Win Over Wolfpack

Rodway picks up first win 2011

Keifer Rodway (So, RHP, Parksville, BC) had a quality start to pick up his first win of the season.  Rodway went 5 innings, surrendering only 3 hits, striking out 5.

Pete Tollenaar (Jr, RHP, Ft McMurray, AB) came in relief for two innings to nail down the victory for the Coyotes.

“It was a big win for us.  Rodway threw very well, continuing from this past weekend in Spokane.  For him to have another quality start and keep the momentum going for our team really sets the tone.  It was also nice to see some clutch RBI’s and situational hitting executed at the plate.  If we continue to have quality starts and solid defense we should be in good shape.”  Head Coach Geoff White
