In the last three tournaments, poor weather conditions forced the cancellation of the playoff round.
Meanwhile, the senior Tigers needed extra innings to beat Fort Saskatchewan 7-6 in the Stags’ tournament final Sunday in Red Deer. The Fort broke a 4-4 deadlock with two runs in the top of the eighth. The Tigers roared back with three runs in the bottom of the inning to claim the championship.
