Edmonton, AB (ISN) – The Hastings All-Stars continue their domination at the Canadian Little League Championships in Edmonton, today handing Glace Bay, Nova Scotia a 19-1 loss to sit at a perfect 3-0 and atop the standings at the mid-point of the week long tournament.

The Vancouver, BC based team has now outscored its opponents 34-1 after three games and is showing no signs of weakness.  

 

In today’s action against the Atlantic Division representatives, the Vancouver based squad jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back, adding 6 and 4 runs in the 2nd and 3rd innings respectively. The Colonels avoided a goose egg by posting their solitary run in the 2nd inning.

The game was delayed due to the earlier Quebec-Ontario game requiring 2 extra innings to determine the winner. The Quebec Division NDG Lynx edged the Ontario Division High Park Braves 4-3.
