Game One was a nail biter, with everyone sitting on the edge of their seats. When East Nepean and High Park met in the round robin, High Park showed their strength winning 14-4. But today was a pitchers delight, with winning pitcher #13 Ben Adams throwing 8 strike outs, and Braves pitcher #48 Maximilian Zentil throwing 4. On top of Adams, it was #8 Jake Calder playing hero, with his two RBIs as the Eagles only scores.
The second game saw White Rock take the win, with a definitive 11-1 win. #6 Darius Opdam Bak got the win, with 8 strikeouts. White Rock also had home runs from Opdam Bak, #15 Matthew Wilkinson, #32 Alen Sugimoto and #7 Kole Turner.
Although the Semi-final games were over, the action was far from it. After the games, the Ottawa Firefighters Band started the festivities for the annual Challenger game.
The game saw the East Nepean Eagles take on the Ottawa All-Stars. 22 boys and girls with physical and/or developmental disabilities faced off. Some of the East Nepean Eagle players went on to the field to help out the players. The game ended in a very tight draw 11-11, with every player making it in for a run.
The night concluded with dinner and live music from the band Hunk and Punks, right at Ken Ross Park.
The last day of the tournament will kick off tomorrow at 1 pm, with the Championship game between East Nepean and White Rock. Following the closing ceremonies, the winning team will board their bus at 4 pm and head to Williamsport, Pennsylvania for the 2015 Little League World Series.
