Dartmouth dominance: Dry win championship

Dartmouth Moosehead Dry remains Nova Scotia’s dominant senior baseball power.

For the 14th time in the past 18 years and the second year in a row, Moosehead Dry is the Nova Scotia Senior Baseball League champion.

The Dry ousted the Halifax Pelham Molson Canadians 5-4 last night at Beazley Field to take the best-of-seven series by a convincing 4-1 count.

“They were all close games, but when it came down to it, this team has a lot of champions on it,” said first baseman Greg West. “This is just another notch in our belt, but this feels as good as the first one did.”

West was named most valuable player of the post-season, capping an outstanding late-season run with a double last night.

Joel Irvine and Colin Johnson helped out with two singles apiece, while Steve Nelson earned the victory and Jeff Reeves the save.

Dartmouth, which won silver at nationals at Beazley Field in August, will return to the event in 2011 in Chatham, N.B., courtesy of last night’s triumph.

“When you look back, we’re very proud of that silver medal, although we didn’t feel (good about it) at the time,” West said. “Now we get a chance to one-up it next year in Chatham.”
