Langley U18 baseball team has three games remaining in regular season

Down to their final out, Dayton Wilson delivered an extra-innings two-run single, scoring Dakota Curry and Travis Leclair as the Langley Blaze rallied for a fourth straight win.

Brendan Halstrom and Haydon Jaco both had RBI doubles.

The Blaze also swept a doubleheader against the Whalley Chiefs on Saturday, winning 4-3 and 6-3.
