Select Team to Play for Gold at Weather Extended Canada Cup

August 13, 2023

The BC Select team has advanced to the gold medal game of a rain soaked Canada Cup in Regina after defeating Team Saskatchewan 8-5 in a Sunday evening semi-final. After Wednesday games were postponed, Team BC dropped their opener Thursday 5-3 to Team Ontario and trailed 5-0 in their second game when it was suspended due to rain. On Friday, Team BC swept a DH from Nova Scotia 3-0 and 12-1 before completing their suspended game against Ontario which finished in a 5-0 defeat. Saturday saw BC split a DH with Saskatchewan, losing 11-8 and winning 6-1 to finish the round robin at 3-3. Given the four weather delays, the gold medal game, originally scheduled for Sunday was moved to Monday evening. 

BC face Team Ontario in Monday's final, which starts at 5pm Pacific time and can be viewed for a subscription fee at the following link:
