The Vauxhall Spurs have seen their season kick off with a busy few weekends to start the spring.
After a big tournament victory in Lethbridge at the Ron Matthews Memorial Tournament, the Spurs saw four games over this past weekend.
The team travelled to Medicine Hat this past weekend for a pair of doubleheaders against the Medicine Hat Knights and the Calgary Strive.
In the first game of the weekend, the Spurs took a 12-9 win over the Knights. In the second of the doubleheader, the Strive snuck out a 4-3 win over Vauxhall. Sunday saw the Spurs take on Calgary first and once again, the Strive were able to push across one more run than Vauxhall en route to a 7-6 win. In the final game of the weekend, the Spurs battled hard but fell by one run yet again in a 6-5 loss to Medicine Hat.
“It went pretty good. We went 1-3, but the three games we lost were all by a single run, so the games were close and pretty exciting for the first few games of the year,” explained coach Jimmy Vulcano.
