University of Saskatchewan – 2016 WCSA Champions

Sunday competition saw the completion of the round robin play, and saw Regina and Saskatchewan seeded into the page 1 vs 2 game. That game saw Saskatchewan defeat Regina 5 – 1, to advance into the Championship game. In the page 3 vs 4 game, the University of Calgary got behind early, but rallied in the 4th inning, taking the win 13 – 6. Calgary then advanced against Regina in the semi final, and Regina struck early, scoring 4 runs in the first inning. Calgary got 1 back in the first themselves, but that was all the scoring. With the 4 – 1 win, Regina returned to face Saskatchewan in the final. The scoring opened in the 4th inning, with Regina taking a 1 – 0 lead, but Saskatchewan replied with 2 in the 5th. Regina tied the game in the 6th inning, and survived a bases loaded situation by Saskatchewan in the bottom of the sixth. The score remained tied after Regina’s at bats in the 7th. That set  up a bases loaded, sacrifice fly that resulted in a close play at the plate, but Saskatchewan scored and the 2016 WCSA title was theirs.
