The Fraser Valley Cyclones Senior Little League team swept their second consecutive provincial championship title, defeating the North Shore All-Stars 10-0 and 9-3 on Saturday at Ambleside Park in West Vancouver.

The team is made up of 15 and 16 year olds from throughout the Lower Fraser Valley including two players from Langley (Nathan Coleman and Connor Stockli-Mervyn) and one from North Langley (Austin Calla).

Calla drove in a pair of runs in the first game.

The victory advances the Cyclones to the Canadian championship tournament, which runs July 31 to Aug. 8 in Thunder Bay, Ont. The winner of the tournament will represent Canada at the senior Little League World Series in Bangor, Maine.

To help defray the costs of the trip, the Cyclones are holding a fundraiser at the Coquitlam Town Hall on July 26 at 6 p.m.
