Kamloops, BC –
The semi final matchup with Okotoks took a sudden turn in the 7th inning. The Jets were leading 3-0 after 6 innings and gave up 4 runs in the 7th. The Jets then loaded the bases in the bottom of the 7th but couldn’t push anyone across.
Luc Hebert started the semi final pitching into the 7th inning allowing 6 hits, 3 runs with 7 K’s and 0 BB. Jesse Borden threw a great final inning with 1 hit and 1 run and a K. Offensively, the Jets were led by Chris Thibideau who was 1 for 3 with a double. Justin Clarkson was 3 for 4 with a run scored. Jager Toffan was 2 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI. Brayden Resch was 2 for 3 with a RBI. Treyton Grant rounded out the offense going 1 for 3.
The Jets had plenty of pitching left so played the loser of the other semi final game. The Jets come out on top by a score of 10-0 over the Parksville Royals. Nelson Quark threw 3 innings for the win allowing 1 hit, 1 BB with 3 K’s. Pat Machibroda closed things out going 2 innings allowing 1 hit with 1 BB.

The Jets would like to wish 3 current players who will be leaving to Orlando, Florida to tryout for Team Canada on Thursday. Nolan Bumstead, Chris Thibideau and Ben Onyshko (who was added after his great start on Friday) will all travel south for 10 days to compete against several professional teams. Good luck fellas!
