From our friend in PEI, Pat Healey:

Fawcetts falter late, lose to defending champs at Sr. Canadians

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – Through five innings, it appeared the Charlottetown Razzy’s Facwetts and St. Thomas Centennials were going to need extra innings here Thursday night at the 2006 Canadian Sr. Men’s softball championship. However, the defending champion Centennials had other things in mind scoring five times in the next two innings en route to a perfect 7-0 record with a 8-3 win. The loss dropped Charlottetown’s record to 2-5, and they will face the Vancouver Grey Sox, who many expected to be strong at these nationals, in their first playoff game Saturday at 11:30 a.m. (3:30 p.m. Atlantic) (more…)

St. Thomas still undefeated
by Scott Stanfield Special to The Citizen

Frank Cox showed why he was voted top pitcher at the 2005 Canadian senior men’s fastpitch championships.

Wednesday evening at a packed Spruce City Stadium, the hard-throwing ace for the defending national champion St. Thomas Evergreen Centennials fanned 10 batters and allowed five hits in a 3-0 win over the Prince George Black Bears, host of the 2006 nationals. (more…)

Sr. Canadians – Aug 31 -Cents have minds set on repeat

From the: Prince George Citizen

Cents have minds set on repeat
by TED CLARKE Citizen staff

Rob O’Brien had an early wake-up call Wednesday.

He had a job to do at Spruce City Stadium — putting the bats of the Saskatoon Aspen Interior Black Sox to sleep.

The 32-year-old St. Thomas Evergreen Centennials pitcher made quick work of the Black Sox at the Canadian Senior Men’s Fastpitch Championship as he faced just 18 batters over five innings in a 9-0 pasting. A master of the riseball, O’Brien rose to the occasion and struck out eight batters while allowing just three hits before the mercy rule kicked in.
