Voyageurs compete at Darien Lake Tournament Series
by Randy Pascal

More great exposure for the Sudbury Baseball Academy Voyageurs talent, as both the 18U and 15U teams were busy competing in the Darien Lake Tournament Series in upstate New York recently.

The elder Voyageurs dropped a 14-9 decision in their opener to the Penfield Chiefs from just outside Rochester on Friday night, bouncing back to edge Prospects Baseball 5-4, breaking a 4-4 tie with the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Despite suffering a lopsided loss to the Lou Gehrig 17U Legends in their round robin finale, the Voyageurs secured the eighth and final playoff berth in the Ryne Sandberg grouping, creating a rematch against the Penfield Chiefs.

"We started Vincent Bonhomme on Friday night and he just wasn't himself," noted head coach Jean-Gilles Larocque. "We went back to him Sunday morning and it was a dominant performance, typical Vince."

The Voyageurs avenged their game on loss with a 21-7 win over the Chiefs, and moved on to their divisional final with an 11-4 win over the Cheektowaga Thundering Herd, as both Bonhomme and Cameron Docking belted home runs for the Northern Ontario crew.

A loss in the final to Team Valle (Brockport, NY) did little to dampen the enthusiasm of the man behind the Baseball Academy in Sudbury, as Larocque also highlited a strong offensive weekend for both Brett Melanson (six doubles) and Reilly Dubé.

The 15U Voyageurs are still getting acclimatized to the level of baseball in other areas, dropping their encounters to the Tri-City Aces (9-5 - Western New York), Baseball U (20-10 - Syracuse), Diamond Pro Baseball (10-2 - Rochester) and Team New Era (Western New York).

The 18U lads are on the road again this coming weekend, heading south for a Saturday double-header against the West Toronto Wildcats on June 24th, while the 15U team are at home on Sunday, welcoming the Halton Hills Eagles to the Terry Fox Sports Complex on June 25th, beginning at 12:30 p.m.
