After defeating the Standard Hill Lakers 10-9 on Monday night, the Kindersley Stallions are your 2021 NSRBL Champions. There likely won't be an actual parade (see 12 Days of Stallions post Christmas below), but the horses attained the feat in their second year in the North Saskatchewan River Baseball League, thanks heavily in part to the playoff contributions from Dylan Flasch at the plate, and Kyle Donaldson on the mound.

Read the Stallions latest Facebook post to view a complete rundown of Game 3, but here is Stallions manager Austin Jamieson describing the true barn-burner that was Monday’s championship game.

As mentioned the Stallions playoff MVP award easily came down to two players, and their performances in the final game didn’t help separate the race one bit. “The Flasch” and “Donny Baseball” are both fun nicknames for the duo that helped the Stallions secure the title, and Jamieson had some very high praise for the duo.

“Donny? I think he’d be ready to go another one tonight if we needed,” said the Stallions manager about Donaldson a day after the pitcher added another 5+ innings to his playoff total, “He’s got a rubber arm, and the guy just loves throwing baseballs.”

“Flasch hit a grand slam, so that helps,” chuckled Jamieson talking about the team’s star hitter, “He hit a couple of lasers. I think he finished the year with 8 home runs, and that’s about as good as it gets in senior baseball. Quite a clutch hitter that’s for sure.”

Another clutch hitter on the Stallions that Jamieson had to shout-out was Jeff Kosolofski.

“(Kosolofski) had an absolute game at the dish. Ripped one in the first, scored our opening run. Then he had a big double in the 7th to cash two more runs, and that’s what sealed it for us for sure. 2 outs, runners on 2nd and 3rd, and ripped one that fell just short of the wall."

Kindersley battled back from down in the series after an ugly 11-0 loss on the road in Game 1, but rebounded with two straight wins including the series clincher up in Standard Hill. Last year the Stallions got the challenged they ponied up for in joining the NSRBL, and this year, overcame the better competition to add another trophy to their stable.
