Humber Hawks vs Seneca Sting

12:00 pm

Humber looks to continue their dominance against a Seneca squad that was 0-4 against Humber this season. This is the first appearance in the National Championship for Seneca.

 

Humber Hawks vs St. Clair Saints

3:00 pm

Ritson Field, Oshawa

 

A familiar foe for the Hawks, as St. Clair and Humber meet once again after the Saints defeated the Hawks in the Gold medal game at home in Tecumseh. In what should be a heavy weight tilt, you can expect these two great teams to go blow for blow with each other. Last year, St. Clair won silver at the National Championships, falling to Fanshawe College 2-1.


October 27th, 2017

Humber Hawks vs Holland Hurricanes

11:00 am

Ritson Field, Oshawa

 

Last season, Humber and Holland met in a tiebreaker scenario after both teams were 1-2 after pool play. In a tight game, where both teams had solid pitching, Holland would come up victorious 2-0. Holland would eventually fall to St. Clair in the semi-finals.
