September 4, 2023

The 2023 Baseball BC Senior AA Provincial Championship concluded Monday afternoon in Maple Ridge with the South Delta Padres completing a perfect 5-0 weekend, to win gold with a 13-8 win over the defending champion Poco Blue Jays. The Padres opened the round robin with a 19-3 win over the Poco Phillies before sneaking past the Vancouver Gunners (VRBL) 2-1. A 3-0 win over the South Delta Brewers in the final round robin game, gave the Padres a direct berth into the semi-finals and a Sunday evening off to watch others battle through two dramatic quarter-final games. 

The first QF was a battle between two BC Minor JR Mens teams, with the South Delta Brewers beating the previously undefeated Vancouver Minor Expos 2-1. The nightcap, was a back and forth battle between the Kelowna Jays and Poco Blue Jays, with the host Poco side plating the go ahead run with a two out single in the top of the 7th before holding on for an 8-7 win. 

Championship Monday began with a marathon as the eventual champion Padres outlasted the Brewers 5-4 in ten innings. The Poco Blue Jays got revenge for an opening night loss by the Kelowna Pirates in the other semi-final, crusing to an 11-1 win. 

The South Delta Padres became the 4th different team from the 4th different league to win the Senior AA Provincial, in the event's four year history.
