Lac La Biche U18 Dodgers are Lakeland baseball champs

Dodgers beat Bonnyville Braves in Lakeland championship game

The Lac La BIche Dodgets are the Lakeland Minor Ball U18 champs.

The Dodgers came back from a two-run deficit early in the Lakeland Minor Ball U18 championship game against the Bonnyville Braves on Thursday night to win the league championship.

It's the second straight season the Dodgers have been crowned league champs. It's also the second time in two years that the Braves have finished second.

The Dodgers were down 4-2 after two innings, but rallied back – allowing the Braves only one more run through the rest of the game to win 15-5. 

Thursday's game was played at Lac La Biche's Bold Center main diamond, in front of several dozen fans for both teams.

There were 11 teams in the Lakeland U18 league this year. The Elizabeth Métis Settlement Riels were playing Marwayne in the bronze medal game on Thursday night. The results of that game will be updated when they become available. The Plamondon Mustangs finished the season in fifth place. 

The Dodgers beat St. Paul on Tuesday to make it to the championship game.
