Nova Scotia Mi'kmaq are being represented this year at the Canadian

- the Men's Thunder "A" Division Team and the Ladybugs.
After two days of competition, here are the following scores:

Pitching: Robert Bernard. Hitting: Harry Paul with 2
Game #2: Thunder 2 vs. BC Prince George 4
(extra inning loss)
Phil Martin with a tough extra inning loss - threw very well.
Harry Paul with a monster solo shot in the first inning.
Game #3: Thunder 2 vs. Alberta 4
Thunder got off to a bad start, Robert Bernard started the game and
allowed three runs in the first inning on two errors and three hits.
Phil Martin comes in and tries to shut the door, but Thunder could not
come back and in the end a couple of bad calls by the umpires - Thunder
end up losing game 4-2.
Thunder is now out of the nationals with a 1 - 2 record.
