The Lethbridge Bulls wrapped up the season in Okotoks with a match-up against the Dawgs on Sunday afternoon, taking the loss by a score of 6-3. It was a tough day for the Bulls, but they will be looking ahead more than not as they're off to the 2018 WMBL Playoffs.
In the first round, the Bulls will see themselves match-up with the best team in the WMBL this season, the Medicine Hat Mavericks. The Mavericks went 38-9 in regular season play and have beaten the Bulls in all six match-ups this season.
This opening series will poise a challenge for Lethbiridge, but they will not forget what happened last year to this very Medicine Hat team. Heading into the 2017 WMBL Playoffs, the Bulls sat second in the West Division and took on the third seed Mavericks in the first round, who defeated the Bulls in five games. Lethbridge had dominated the Mavericks all season long, but were unable to stave off elimination.
The Bulls are hopeful they can do the same thing the Mavericks did to them a year ago, but it will take great pitching and a wake up call from the bats to do so.
The first two games of the 2018 WMBL Playoffs for the Bulls will be July 31st and August 1st in Medicine Hat before coming home to Spitz Stadium August 2nd and if necessary, August 3rd. All games have a first pitch coming in at 7:05pm.
Tickets will be on sale later in the day.
