Vernon’s Imagine Pools Anarchy are provincial co-ed D slo-pitch champions.
The Anarchy dropped a pair of round-robin games before finding their offence and stopping the Mission Incognito 18-6 in a five-inning final Sunday in Langley.
“The championship game was a great team effort both defensively and offensively,” said Anarchy veteran Taryn Robertson, who took turns at first base and catcher.
Female MVP for Vernon in the final went to second baseman Courtney Bissell, while male MVP went to shortstop, outfielder Chad Gilroy.
Vernon bowed 11-7 to I’d Hit That of Abbotsford before outlasting the Langley Krunch 9-8 and falling 9-4 to the Abbotsford Rhinos to open preliminary play.
With one life left, Sunday proved to be an amazing day as the bats recovered and a 26-6 mercy win over the Langley Generals, started off their championship run.
The Anarchy met The Krunch again and won 21-9 before stopping the Mission Old and The Restless 15-8 in the semifinals.
“What a great way to end the season,” added Robertson.
“The Anarchy wish to thank Imagine Pools and Waterscapes for their sponsorship.”
