Major Lynx


Provincial Champions


July 4, 2006

The NDG Major Lynx defeated Valleyfield 2-1 in eight innings this afternoon to capture the Quebec Major A division championship.

In a hotly disputed contest, David Fitzsimmons pitched 5 2/3 brilliant innings, striking out 9 and allowing only two hits.  Jonathan Raftus displayed nerves of steel coming on in relief in the sixth inning.  Gabriel Cuevas-Perez knocked in David Fitzsimmons with the go ahead run in the top of the eighth inning.  Raftus then struck out the side to end the game.

The game was also marked by some sterling defensive plays.  Second baseman

Sean Griffin and right fielder Gregory Duran made game-saving catches for the Lynx in the seventh inning.


This championship is a tremendous team victory!  The players displayed great character playing in front of a very large, pro-Valleyfield crowd.  Congratulations to them as well as the coaching staff and the parents.  They have worked exceedingly hard to achieve this goal!

Our thanks go out to the volunteers in Valleyfield who made the tournament such a pleasant experience.

The Major Lynx are off to Whalley, BC for the Canadian Championships!
