Canadian Region Tournament Championship Game:

North Vancouver Lynn Valley (BC) 2, Valleyfield (QC) 1 (TITLE)


Summary:

North Vancouver Lynn Valley shrugged off a preliminary round loss to Valleyfield in the Canadian Region tournament, and rode the five-hit pitching of Clinton Hosford to a 2-1 victory over the Quebec champions in the championship game. The win gave Lynn Valley its first ever Canadian championship.

Hosford started slowly in the title game, but kept Valleyfield at bay early. The game remained scoreless through three innings despite a series of Quebec threats. Valleyfield left two runners stranded following an inning-ending groundout in the first, and left two more runners on base in both the second and third innings as Hosford registered inning-ending strikeouts.

Lynn Valley broke the scoreless tie with a fourth inning run, and added a second run on centerfielder Lloyd Haggard's two-out homer in the fifth. Valleyfield trimmed the lead by scoring a fifth inning run, but Hosford struck out the side in the bottom of the sixth inning to punch Lynn Valley's ticket to the World Series. Hosford, who allowed only one earned run in 16 innings of work at the region tournament, struck out 13 Valleyfield batters in the game. Valleyfield pitchers Nicholas Blanchette and Eric Leclerc combined to limit Lynn Valley to five hits.

Both Lynn Valley and Valleyfield advanced to the championship game with 4-1 records in preliminary round competition. Lynn Valley's only loss was to Valleyfield in the second round of the tournament. Blanchette roped a three-run homer in the first inning, and then turned in 11 strikeouts on the mound to lead Valleyfield to the win. Following the loss to Valleyfield, Lynn Valley won three straight preliminary round games, including a 12-2 drubbing of the host Saint John East Suburban LL and a 21-1 rout of previously unbeaten Orleans, Ontario. Hosford threw a three-hitter for the B.C. champs, and Spencer Barnard was 4-for-4 with a solo home run. Lynn Valley then clinched a title game berth with a 3-0 win over Edmonton Jasper Park. Haggard and Brian Briscoe combined on a no-hitter over the Prairie titlists.

Valleyfield, which was defending its 1992 Canadian title, won its first three tournament games before falling 4-3 to Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. The loss set up a matchup between 3-1 Orleans and 3-1 Valleyfield in which the winner would advance to the title game. Orleans held a 4-1 lead through four innings before Valleyfield exploded for eight runs in the top of the fifth. Blanchette keyed the inning with a grand slam home run to right field. Winning pitcher Pierre-Marc Daoust struck out 10 Orleans batters on the afternoon.
