The Victoria Eagles boys team won the 11-and-under AAA-tier 1 baseball provincial championship in Cloverdale over the B.C. Day weekend, taking down the Abbotsford Angels 14-7 in the final.

The final was a rematch of an earlier meeting between the Eagles and Angels, in which the Angels defeated the Eagles.

But it was the Eagles who came up flew ahead early in the final, and hung on with a convincing 14-7 win and the gold medal.

The Eagles had advanced through a tough pool with opening day wins over Rutland 12-1  and Richmond 15-5, setting up Day 2 matches against the Ladner Red Sox and Angels.

The Eagles defeated the  Red but the loss to the Angels meant the Eagles had to face favourite Cloverdale Spurs in a semifinal  game on Sunday. The Eagles scored early and took a two-run lead but the Spurs rallied to go ahead 4-2 with one inning left.

In a seesaw battle, the Eagles took a 7-6 win in extra innings from the Spurs, advancing to the final.
