Langford girls get it done on home field

Lightning fastpitch squad follows up silver medal in Sooke with gold at Centennial Park

Make that two and counting.

The Langford Lightning under-12 girls softball team earned their second straight tournament medal, rolling over Central Saanich Extreme 13-0 in the championship final Sunday at Centennial Park.

The victory was the locals’ third of the day, following big wins over Victoria Carnarvon to open the playoff round and a 14-3 mercy rule win arch-rival Sooke in the afternoon semifinal.

Langford posted a 3-1 record in round robin play to finish up second behind Sooke, who beat the Lightning on Saturday.

Following the semifinal loss, Sooke went on to drop a 12-11 decision to Cordova Bay in the bronze medal game.

The Lightning’s tournament victory gave them a measure of revenge over their rivals from Sooke, who beat the Lightning for gold in the tournament held in that community a few weekends back.
