Ontario 6, BC 3
In a battle of the last undefeated teams in the tournament, somebody had to lose and unfortunately today it was Team BC. BC struggled against some stout Ontario pitching.
An athletic sliding catch by Callum Pilgrim (Abbotsford) to end the inning and save a couple runs ignited the crowd.
With the win over Alberta Thursday, BC secured a spot in the medal rounds. Team BC will cap off pool play with game against Saskatchewan Friday (14:00 CDT).
