The Estevan Sherritt Coal Haulers and TS&M Tornados both failed to advance to the playoffs at the annual Legasse AAA baseball tournament in Regina on the weekend.
The tournament attracts bantam and peewee teams from across Saskatchewan and out of province each year on the May long weekend.
All three of the bantam Haulers' games saw the winner top double digits in runs.
Unfortunately for the Haulers, they only came out on top in one of them, posting a 1-2 record.
In their first game on Friday night, the Haulers faced a Baseball Regina league opponent in the Regina Pacers.
The Pacers exploded at the plate to earn a 15-5 victory.
Saturday morning's game brought the Haulers their only win of the tournament, an 11-4 beating over the St. James A's from Winnipeg.
But the Haulers could not build off that in their second game of the day that evening, as they lost 12-2 to another regular season opponent, the Regina Buffalos.
Meanwhile, although they came closer to winning with each game they played, the peewee Tornados failed to come up with a victory at the Legasse tournament.
In their first game on Friday night, the Tornados lost 19-6 to St. James.
On Saturday morning, the Tornados faced a familiar foe in the Pacers, who they had split with in their opening doubleheader of the season.
Estevan made it closer this time, but still wound up on the losing side in a 10-6 defeat.
In their final game on Sunday morning, the Tornados took on the Saskatoon Cardinals and narrowly lost a 7-6 final.
The Haulers and Tornados are both back in regular season action this week.
The Haulers host Carlyle tomorrow at 6 p.m. at Cactus Park and visit the Buffalos for a doubleheader on Sunday.
The Tornados host a doubleheader against the Regina White Sox on Sunday. Game times are 1 and 4 p.m. at Cactus Park.
