The Carlyle Cardinals and Oxbow Chiefs, two of three Saskota Baseball League teams competing in Senior AA Tier 2 provincials this weekend, will face some familiar foes.

For Carlyle, it will be in the form of the Estevan Tap House Wolves, as well as the Chiefs, and Kindersley, Border City and Yorkton.

"It's going to be a good weekend baseball. There's six great teams teams there, so it's going to be great competition no matter who we're playing or what game it is," said Cardinal Brent McLean.

"We've got to be prepared for game one, that's against Kindersley, then we move on to Border City who I believe won last year. They're the team to beat, I would say."

On the other hand, the Oxbow Chiefs will be chafing for another shot at the Wolves after being beat out in the final for the second time in a row in the Harbourne Memorial tournament.

"We've been looking for redemption against those guys for a couple times now. They're a great team, and with Estevan hosting too, they're going to be going all out. Hopefully we can bring our solid game and get a good outcome," said Chief Jordan Cooney.

"We're expecting to go in there with a little bit of confidence. We saw most of these teams last year in Yorkton, at provincials there, and finished second. We know there's good ball teams up there.  We're just going to play our game and hope for the best."
