The Slave Lake Bantam ‘AA’ Heat ventured down south this past weekend and left with a 0 – 4 record.
Kevin Campbell, assistant coach, says Game 1 on Saturday morning was against the Camrose Cougars.
“The Heat fell 13 – 3 in five innings. Pitching for the Heat were Uneeb Kahn, Ethan Wedmid, Kyle Campbell and Chase Nehring,” he says.
Game 2 was against the St. Albert Cardinals and according to Campbell, it was an easy enough game, however the Heat didn’t walk away with a win.
“This was a really good ball game and we could have easily walked away with the victory but lost it in extra innings losing 9 – 8. Hunter Mouallem pitched five strong innings for the heat with Matt Lafrance coming in for relief,” he says.
On Sunday the Heat went up against the Provost Pilots first and took a 6 – 4 loss.
“Matt Lafrance pitched five strong innings with Will Chemago throwing the final two; Parker Hay and Kyle Campbell both went 2 – 4 for the Heat,” says Campbell.
Finally, the Heat wrapped things up with a game against the Strathmore Reds.
“Aiden Blocka, will Chemago and Ethan Wedmid shared the pitching duties in the Heat’s 7 – 4 loss,” says Campbell. “Tayyab khadim and Carson Masur both had strong games defensively for the Heat.”
The Bantam’s are off this weekend and will travel to Strathmore on August 5th and 6th for the Tier 1 Provincials.

Head coach Cody Stasow says the boys won Game 1 with a score of 9 – 3.
“Randall Weber pitched six excellent innings and collected three base hits in the game with Justin Kwasney pitching the last inning to finish the game,” he says. “Daniel Masur, Cole Stasow both had good games at the plate in the win.”
Game 2 followed suit with the Heat walking away with a victory of 13 – 2.
“Lee Worobec went the distance on the mound for the Heat!” he says. “Brayden Stasow, Ian Pollard and Luke Macaulay all collected multiple hit games in the win to lead the heat to a huge victory.”
