The Bolton Brewers ended their long weekend with a little hardware.

The AA baseball club earned the title of consolation championships at the Lisle Victoria Day tournament, an annual tradition among representatives of the North Dufferin Baseball League.

A weekend-long break in the NDBL schedule allowed ten of the league’s teams to hit Ross Houston Memorial Park in Lisle, where Bolton faltered in a 3 – 2 loss to the Ivy Leafs in the opening game.

A 3 – 0 shutout of the Creemore Braves on Sunday morning allowed for a Monday play-in to the consolation final, where Bolton booked their ticket via a decisive 14 – 8 win over the Ivy Rangers.

Meeting the hometown Astros in the afternoon’s consolation final, Bolton capped off the weekend with an 8 – 0 shutout.

Bolton’s other NDBL representative, the Bolton Dodgers, reached the championship bracket through a 7 – 4 win over the Astros in their opening matchup.

They failed to reach the final after being shutout 8 – 0 by the Kincardine Cubs on Monday morning.

The Brewers will host a trio of games at Ted Houston Park in Bolton this weekend, beginning with a 6:30p.m. opening pitch against the Creemore Braves on Friday night. A doubleheader follows Saturday afternoon with the Orangeville Giants and Alliston Athletics.

They remain undefeated so far this season, though poor weather conditions has limited the Brewers to just two games so far.

The Dodgers return to their regular season schedule with a trip to Lisle to face the Astros on Sunday.
