We hit the ball as good as any team here this week. Our pitching and defence was unbelievable all week long. We faced and overcame adversity and never quit in any game. It was a total-team effort. The girls, coaches and parents made a huge commitment to this team and we showed that hard work can pay off."

Added coach Bobby Power: The girls deserve what they achieved. The hard work and level of play they showed was incredible. We played hard and fought through a couple injuries and sickness this week but never thought of quitting in any game."

The Eagles finished the tournament with a 4-4 record.

      haha that is funny.... There is no "C" you are entitled to your opinion but clearly not brave enough to put a name to your opinion. Just to clarify though it was a Canadian Championship you could play in Tier 1 & Tier 2 there were 2 tournaments going on at the same time PEI played Tier 2 and won the Bronze Medal. We are very proud of our accomplishment and the girls hard work. Thank you for sharing your opinion. Chris Halliwell

      Fact is: As Chris said, there were 2 levels, a Cup and an Open. PEI played in the Open and won the bronze in that division. Well done girls, coaches, parents and all those committed to supporting these girls and their serious desire to play ball nationally. That said, we did bring with us a certain East Coast flair, and teams from all over Canada loved and appreciated the hard work, the spirit and the integrity PEI displayed on and off the field.
