The Canadian U18 Men’s National Softball Team took a tough loss at the WBSC U18 Men’s Softball World Cup as Australia took the 14-3 win in four innings. Australia sent 10 batters to the plate in the bottom of the first to score seven runs and added five in the second and two more in the third to cruise to the important win.
Max Major (Delisle, Sask.) got things started the right way for Canada by singling up the middle to start the game and Brock Fencott (Belleville, Ont.) was hit by a pitch to put two runners on base, but a fielder’s choice and a pair of strikeouts left both runners stranded. Australia led off the bottom of the first with a single of their own followed by a pair of walks to load the bases. Another walk brought in the first run of the game as Canada resorted to an early pitching change. A double to center scored two runs, followed by a two-run single to right. After a sacrifice bunt advanced the runner to second, the next batter dropped a fly ball in front of the left fielder to plate a run, and the batter reached third on the throw to home before scoring on a wild pitch as Australia scored seven runs.
After Canada went down in order in the top of the second, Australia loaded the bases with three walks to start the bottom of the inning. Back-to-back singles brought three runs in to score, with an RBI ground out and a run-scoring infield single later in the inning pushing the score to 12-0. Tyler Branchaud (Metcalfe, Ont.) worked a leadoff walk in the top of the third but he could not move any further as the next two batters struck out followed by a ground out. Australia got a leadoff double and a walk to start the bottom of the third, and an error in right field led to a run scoring on the play. A walk loaded the bases and a sacrifice fly scored Australia’s fourteenth run of the game.
Team Canada was able to get on the board with three runs in the top of the fourth but fell short of extending the game. Ryan Bicknell (Prince Albert, Sask.) hit a one-out single and advanced to second on a wild pitch before coming in to score on a double over the centerfielder by Mason McKay (Tavistock, Ont.) with Xavier Daneau (St-Celestin, Que.) following up with a run-scoring double of his own. A single to left by Branchaud scored Canada’s third run, but that was as much as Canada would get as the game ended on the run-ahead rule.
It was a tough day for Canada’s pitching, as Connor Brooks (Napanee, Ont.) started the game but allowed four runs on a hit and three walks before giving way to Reese Yantzi (Shakespeare, Ont.), who allowed three runs on three hits in one inning pitched. Brody Fraser (Upper Nine Mile River, N.S.) came out to start the second and allowed five runs on two hits and three walks before giving way to Nathan Running (Innerkip, Ont.), who gave up two runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks while striking out two in two innings of relief. McKay and Daneau each had an RBI double for Canada at the plate, with Branchaud adding an RBI single. Major and Bicknell each added a single.
The loss dropped Canada’s record to 2-2, creating a four way tie for second place in Group A with Argentina, the Czech Republic and Singapore behind first-place Australia (4-0). On the final day of the preliminary round, the Czech Republic (2-2) will face Singapore (2-2) at noon local time, while Canada will take on Argentina (2-2) at 5:00pm local time on Wednesday (11:00pm EST on Tuesday). The winning team from each of those games will earn a spot in the Super Round.
Earlier games on Tuesday saw USA earning their first win by beating Denmark 7-3, Singapore defeated South Africa 9-8 in nine innings, Japan edged Mexico 4-3, and Argentina also got by the Czech Republic 4-3 in nine innings. Japan currently sits in first place in Group B with a 4-0 record, followed by Guatemala and New Zealand both sitting at 2-1 with a head-to-head game currently in progress. Mexico is currently positioned in fourth place with a 2-2 record.

The Ontario Hockey League today announced that St. Louis Blues prospect Tyler Tucker of the Flint Firebirds is the OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week with 11 points in four games including three goals and eight assists along with a plus/minus rating of plus-4.
Tucker joins Firebirds teammate Riley McCourt as the second defenceman to claim the honour this season, marking the fifth different occasion that a Flint player has been recognized. Tucker's 11 points over an extended week that included a Family Day holiday on Monday led the League as Flint's club record-setting winning streak reached 15 games. Tucker set a new Firebirds record for points by a defenceman in a single game on Monday, racking up seven consisting of two goals and five assists in a 12-7 road win over the Sarnia Sting. He chipped in with an assist in Thursday's 4-0 road win over the Niagara IceDogs before scoring his 16th goal of the season and picking up a helper in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Mississauga Steelheads. Tucker and the Firebirds saw their 15-game winning streak snapped back at home on Saturday as the defender collected an assist in a 4-1 loss to the Kitchener Rangers.
A 19-year-old product of Longlac, Ont., Tucker sits seventh among OHL defencemen with 53 points (16-37--53) over 49 games between Flint and Barrie this season. The fourth-year veteran has registered 24 points (8-16--24) over 21 games since being acquired by the Firebirds on January 7th. A former first round (14th overall) pick of the Barrie Colts in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection, Tucker has recorded 149 points (34-115--149) over 238 career regular season contests. He was a seventh round (200th overall) pick of the St. Louis Blues in the 2018 NHL Draft. Tucker made his professional debut last spring, appearing in two regular season games with the AHL's San Antonio Rampage.
Two goaltenders were also in the running for this week's award including Guelph Storm netminder Nico Daws who went 3-0 with a 1.88 goals-against average and .932 save percentage along with Oshawa Generals puckstopper Zachary Paputsakis who won a pair of games while posting a 1.50 goals-against average and .951 save percentage.

On Saturday, February 22, prior to the Owen Sound Attack facing off against the Erie Otters, Mark Woolley proudly presented Diabetes Canada with a $35,000 cheque, raised through his efforts in just six months with Woolley’s Warriors (WW28). The donation will help send kids to Diabetes Canada D-Camps this summer.
Launched in August 2019, WW28 is a nonprofit initiative that holds the goal of sending kids to D-Camps and ultimately connecting those living with diabetes through sharing Woolley’s personal story, while building a platform for others to share theirs. Woolley, an 18-year-old who was originally diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 12 after his older brother Matt had also been diagnosed at birth, has been meeting fellow diabetic youth and young athletes following his games this season in addition to his fundraising efforts.
Part of Woolley’s fundraising included partnering with the Attack on the inaugural Woolley’s Warriors Night on November 9, 2019. The event raised over $2500, as well as 10 wardrobe-sized boxes of clothing and household items in support of Diabetes Canada.
Woolley’s incredible $35,000 donation will help send a number of kids to D-Camps in 2020, where after beginning more than 60 years ago, the camps have continued to give children living with Type 1 diabetes an authentic camp experience that combines fun activities, friendship, and education on how to manage their diabetes with help from medical professionals who are on site 24/7.
On hand for the presentation was Laura Toito, who has been an exceptional support of WW28 since its creation, and Nicole Holder Dulson – both from Diabetes Canada.
Most notably, the unbelievable and overwhelming quick success of WW28 would not have been possible without the support of so many who donated not just financially, but also with genuine support.
“I just want to personally thank each and every person who has had an impact on making this possible. None of this would be possible without the outstanding support shown from countless people thus far,” Woolley reflected. “I remember when WW28 was first launched, we had a goal of raising $6,000 just to be able to send a few kids to camp… now looking back at what we had aimed for in August, and seeing the progression of WW28, it truly is outstanding.”
“So many kids living with Type 1 will be positively impacted after being given the opportunity to attend D-Camp,” Woolley continued. “So once again, thank you to everybody who has supported me and WW28 so far. I’m looking forward to the future and can’t wait to continue to do as much as I can to connect those living with Type 1 diabetes.”

Coyotes Win 7 Medals
The Flying Angels Track Club hosted a prep meet at York University on Sunday, February 23 as part of the Minor Track Association winter Track and Field program.
Several track clubs from across the Toronto GTA area, Brampton, Pickering, Hamilton, Burlington, London, Milton, Brantford, Newmarket, Barrie, and Port Elgin were in attendance, along with 11 members of the Georgian Bay Coyotes.
Our Coyotes have been training very hard since their last meet a month ago. So they were excited to see how they would do deep in the middle info heavy training.
The day began with the Tyke Girls and Tyke Boys running together on the indoor 200m oval. Sydney Snelling grabbed a silver medal in the Tyke Girls 1200m race as did Nathan Leary in the Tyke Boys 1200m. Keira Snelling earned a bronze medal in the Atom Girls 1500m event. The Mite Boys 400m race had Liam MacInness-Wiley lacing up in his first ever indoor meet. He knocked whopping 9 seconds off his best time to snatch 3rd as he nosed out his rival at the line. Mason Bell dropped his 1500m time by over 2 seconds in the Atom Boys 1500m and Taryn Weppler took 7 seconds off her Atoms Girls 1500m previous best.
The 800m races began after lunch, giving our Coyotes a chance to recharge after the morning race. There were many exciting finishes and lots of reasons for cheering.
Liam MacInnes-Wiley grabbed his 2nd medal of the day in the Mite Boys age group with a , knocking a massive 18 seconds off his best time. Sydney Snelling won her 2nd medal of the day as well, taking gold in the Tyke Girls race.
Olivia Latham ran a very strong race to edge out her competitions at the line to win bronze in the Atom Girls event. Keira Snelling was in close pursuit behind Latham as she posted a personal best time of 2:43.84, taking off 3 seconds. Emmett Leary also posted a personal best time of 2:42.15 in his Atom Boys 800m, dropping his time by over 2 seconds.
Overall it was a great day of racing. We brought home 7 medals and had 7 personal best performances. Many others were only a couple seconds off their best times as well. Exciting since being deep into heavy training, personal best times don't come very often.
We have just under 5 weeks before provincials. So with a few more weeks of hard training and then tapering over the final 2 weeks, our Coyotes will be in great racing shape by then.
