BC Little League Provincial Championships 2006 Featuring Hosts West Van and D5 Winners from North Van

Jul 22, 2006

By Catherine Barr


Play Ball - and lots of it this week as the British Columbia Provincial Little League Championships are in town. North Vancouver's Forest Hills, who won the Division 5 title, and tournament host team West Vancouver are both vying for the coveted title at North Van's Chris Zuehlke Park against teams from as far away as Prince George, Coquitlam and Vancouver. On Saturday's opening day, the two North Shore teams went head to head in the early stages of the round robin tournament in what promises to be one of the most exciting sports events for all involved.
