PARRSBORO - The Parrsboro Peewee A Braves will cap off what has already been a phenomenal season when they compete at provincial championships in Antigonish this weekend.
The Braves, who won their district championship in Truro two weekends ago and have only lost two games all season, are expected to face their toughest competition yet at provincials. Joining them in the tournament will be teams from Antigonish, Truro, Humber Park, Hammonds Plains, Clarks Harbour and an Eastern Rep team.
"It's going to be a higher level, and every team will be really competitive, but the boys are pumped and we're excited too," said coach Matt Hoeg.
The Braves have already had a memorable summer, having won a tournament in Kinkora, P.E.I. prior to winning the district title.
The team has proven strong with their bats, but has also shown all-around skill, according to the coach.
"When they focus, they can compete with anyone," he said. "Everyone will have to be playing well."
