Kelowna Falcons

Game One Loss

The Kelowna Falcons lost their first postseason game by a score of 8-2 against the Victoria HarbourCats. The Falcons will now travel back home to play the Cats and try to stave off elimination.

Kelowna was on the board first courtesy of a Kade Hall solo home run. The next inning saw Davis Todosichuk come home courtesy of a sacrifice fly from Taylor Wright to deep right field. The Cats would respond and tag the Falcons with eight runs the rest of the way through.

Bryan Donohue, the Falcons head coach, gave his thoughts on the team’s performance. “I thought that Cal Hehnke really competed tonight. There was no lack of focus or intent on his part, the Cats just put some good swings on some baseballs. The game started to change when we let their early arms off the hook. We had the bases loaded with no one out and we came away with nothing. We have to refocus and try to not do so much at the plate. They hit, we didn’t and that was the story of the game.”

Donohue was confident his team would rebound¬†coming into an elimination game on Wednesday night. He said, “I know that the hit total and run total are not characteristic of this team. I know we really wanted to come out and get this game. I saw some guys try to do a little too much at the plate. We have to refocus and play the game we’ve been playing all summer. We’ll be alright.”

Cal Hehnke was tagged with the postseason loss. Andrew Alvarez, an incoming Cal Poly freshman, will make his first start of the summer in game two. First pitch goes at 6:35 pm.
