The top four teams advance to the semifinal round.

Ties are broken based on records in head-to-head competition among tied teams. If a clear winner cannot be determined from head-to-head results, the tie is broken by calculating the ratio of runs allowed to defensive innings played for all teams involved in the tie. The team with the lowest runs-per-defensive-inning ratio advances.

In the event of a tie involving three or more teams, once the initial tie is broken, the remaining tied teams are again compared on head-to-head record to determine if a clear winner can be identified. If no clear winner can be identified from head-to-head results among the remaining tied teams, the runs-per-defensive-inning ratio is again used. This process is repeated until all ties have been broken.

Summary:

The 2011 Langley Little League all-star team did many things well. Perhaps their core acumen was the team's ability to bounce back.

Langley avenged its only defeat in pool competition at the British Columbia provincial tournament with a 6-2 victory over Hastings Community Little League in the championship game at Hampton Park in Victoria. The win marked the second consecutive tournament in which Langley produced a title-clinching win against a team that had previously beaten it, and it advanced the District 3 champions to the Canadian Region tournament.

Hastings had edged Langley, 4-3 in ten innings, during pool competition, but in the title game, Langley broke to a 4-0 lead in the second inning and never trailed while claiming its third-ever provincial championship.

"After the loss, we built our momentum from there," said Langley manager Dean Cantelon.

Riley Ens and Trevor Miller delivered key blows that provided Langley with the early lead. Ens opened the scoring with a double that plated Ken DuBois and Connor McCreath, and McCreath followed with a two-run homer.

Hastings halved the deficit with a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning, but could not produce any further offense against Langley pitchers Yi Fan Pan and Yi An Pan. The two hurlers, who are identical twins, combined to scatter six hits and strike out seven in the win. Yi Fan Pan threw the first four innings, while Yi An Pan closed out the win with two shutout innings.

Langley padded its lead with a pair of runs in the sixth. Ian Burns singled to score Yi An Pan, and Cole Cantelon scored on a wild pitch.

"We're strong defensively and offensively," said Dean Cantelon. "With this group of boys, if one has an off-game, another player picks it up. In my view, they're very solid throughout."

Langley entered the tournament as one of the favorites, as District 3 leagues had claimed seven of the prior nine British Columbia titles. Langley solidified its credentials by topping defending Canadian champion Little Mountain Little League, 7-1, on the first day of round robin competition. Yi An Pan threw three-plus strong innings and belted a solo home run, while Yi Fan Pan closed out the win and chipped in a two-run single.

"It was a great start for us," said Dean Cantelon. "The boys had some nerves, but they overcame it as the game went on. I'm very pleased with what I see. There is always room for improvement, but a win is a win."

After an off day, Langley earned a second win by edging Lynn Valley Little League, 3-2. But Langley suffered its first loss of the tournament when Hastings rallied with two outs in the sixth to force extra innings and ultimately defeat Langley, 4-3.

Following the close win and the defeat, Langley found its stride. Langley closed pool competition with three wins on the trot, including a 14-1 victory over Layritz Little League, an 8-2 decision over the hosts that clinched the second seed coming out of round robin competition, and a decisive 20-4 win over Trail Little League. Langley closed out the win over Layritz with five runs in the fifth inning and seven in the sixth, then built an early 7-0 lead by scoring in each of the first three innings in the win over Hampton.

Langley then scored in every inning of its semifinal round win over Little Mountain, scoring single runs in the first four innings before closing out the mercy rule-shortened win with a six-run burst in the fifth. Hastings also advanced following its semifinal round win, a 3-1 decision over Layritz, before Langley reversed its earlier loss with the title game win.

"Our boys were confident, but not overconfident," noted Dean Cantelon. "If they played their game with sound defence and got their bats going, everything would take care of itself."

Langley went on to win the Canadian championship following its triumph in Victoria, then at the Little League World Series achieved something that no Canadian league had ever accomplished: they defeated a team from Chinese Taipei. McCreath singled and eventually scored the winning run as Langley snapped a 3-3 tie in the fourth inning and went on to defeat Ching-Tang Little League (Kaohsuing, Chinese Taipei), 5-3, in an elimination bracket game to record Canada's first win in seventeen games against Chinese Taipei opponents dating back to the two countries' first meeting in 1969. Langley finished the series in fourth place in the international bracket after winning two of its four games.
