Chilliwack’s bantam AA Cougars played a double-header showdown against the league leading Vancouver Expos on Saturday.

Game one saw the Cougars edge the Expos 2-1 in a tight defensive contest. A pitching exhibition by starter Konnar MacDonald and reliever Zac Middleton held the Expos to only one run over the seven innings.

Offensively, Evan Kellington went two-for-two at the plate, scoring both Chilliwack runs with Josh Anderson earning an RBI.

Game two saw the Cougars prevail again, with a fast start translating to a 5-4 win.Devyn Heggs started a three-run first inning with a double, coming around to score on another double by Ryan Petkau.

Chilliwack’s starting pitcher, Kaleb Loewen, kept the Expos off balance during the first three innings, and reliever Trent Loewen helped the Cougars carry a one-run lead into the seventh.

Heggs came on as the closer with runners on first and second and gave up a walk to load the bases.

Vancouver’s final batter worked the count full before striking out on a Heggs fastball.

The Cougars now have a record of 10-4-1 heading into the final five games of the season. Chilliwack’s next home game is against New Westminster next Monday at noon at Fairfield Island.
