Pitchers – Mack Berry, Caleb Nielsen, Brockton Wickins
Game MVP – Brendan Winning
The Swift Current Indians really are a better team than the score showed as they recorded 7 hits for the game, however the BC boys came to life on the sticks and stayed hot all morning. A big difference in this game was errors with the Indians committing 9 errors and BC only giving up 1. Nice way for the boys to finish the tournament. We are all very proud of our team. Thanks to BC Minor for supporting our efforts and our travels to Saskatchewan. It is definitely a trip our team will not soon forget…
