The Chilliwack Mayhem finished fifth at the U-12 squirt fastpitch provincials, held last weekend in Maple Ridge.
The Mayhem, a rep A level team, lost 6-5 to the Victoria Devils in a hard-fought quarter-final.
Chilliwack went 2-2 in round-robin play and bounced the Ridge Meadows Pride 4-2 in their playoff opener. In a game that went to extra innings, pitcher Kyra Wiens struck out 11 Ridge Meadows batters, allowing no walks over six innings.
Hank Soltys hit a bases-loaded triple to drive in the winning runs.
In the quarter-final against Victoria, Chilliwack battled back from a 4-1 deficit and led 5-4 after a Kara Wismer line drive.
But Victoria came back to win in extra innings.
The Mayhem had a remarkable season, winning one gold and two silver at five tournament appearances.
Batting average and RBI leaders were Wiens (.493 and 49), Kennedy Galley (.465 and 32) and Mattisen Henrotte (.396 and 37). Shortstop Veronica Sawatzky led the team in stolen bases with 34. Galley swiped 28 and Gracyn Anderson had 20.
Galley led the team in extra bases hit with 14, including two home runs. Soltys and Deanna Tuchscherer both had nine.
Champ Thiessen had one of the lowest strikeout percentages at 15.8.
Ashley Tizzard and Kalista Kirkness played fearless gold-glove defence at third base all season. Danny Klassen spent the season on injured list, but she was in the dugout cheering on her team all weekend.
The Mayhem move up to peewee A next season and will be holding try outs in September.
