This past weekend the Brandon Heat U16B softball team was in Steinbach competing in the Provincial Championship.  The tournament started on Friday morning and saw the Heat go undefeated in their pool for the round-robin portion which then placed them in the final 8 teams out of a total 23 teams competing (top 2 teams from each pool).  On Sunday morning they advanced to the final 4 after beating Russell 7 to 3, and then to the championship final after defeating Virden by a score of 16 to 3.  In the final game they faced the undefeated Boni-Vital East 1 team and after 7 innings, the Heat were victorious by a score of 8 to 2.  The heat advisory could very well have been for the opponents of these determined girls as they came together and showed the other teams what can happen if they underestimate the Heat
