Final #1: Bruno -10, Unity -9


Bruno Bisons

Bruno Bisons celebrate their victory, after beating the Unity Cardinals and forcing a second game to determine who would be the senior men’s 2A provincial champions.

In a must-win situation, the Bruno Bisons defeated the Unity Cardinals 10-9 in the first game of the championship final series August 11 in Saskatchewan senior men’s A2 provincials.

The Bisons jumped out to an early lead, scoring two runs (Curtis Sibley and Cody Thiel, each an MVP in earlier games) in the first inning.

Cory Wildeman retaliated for the Cardinals with a homerun out over left field, followed by a Ben Gieni three-base hit and score in the second, tying the game 2-all.

Unity pulled into the lead in the third inning with two runs to Bruno’s one and a score of 4-3.

With the second homerun of the game, Justin D’Entremont runs home past an empty dugout as his teammates are outside waiting to congratulate him.

The fourth inning saw Unity bring home four players to score, including Justin D’Entremont who hit a home run over the right field fence. With Bruno only scoring one run in the inning, Unity was now ahead 8-4 and maintained their four run lead through the fifth inning which ended with a score of 9-5.

Bruno fought back hard, however, and scored five runs in the sixth inning, taking the lead at 10-9. Their runs included a three-base hit by game MVP Chris Osmak, who scored on an RBI from Curtis Sibley. That run proved to be the game winning run for the Bisons.

The Cardinals, despite their last-bat advantage, were unable to score in either the sixth or seventh innings and, if they were to win provincials, would have to do it the hard way –with back-to-back games.

Bruno – 15, Rosetown – 3

With the Rosetown Angels going down to defeat at the hands of the Unity Cardinals 4-3 the night before, and the Bruno Bisons losing to the Carnduff Astros 4-3 in a final extra inning played earlier in the morning, the Angels and Bisons met in a do-or-die game August 10 in the Saskatchewan 2013 Men’s Senior A2 Provincials.

Although the Angels’ Jeff Ebel put the first run up on the scoreclock early in the game, the Bisons retaliated with three runs in the second inning and never looked back. Rosetown was unable to catch up and, losing 15-3 to the Bisons, the Angels’ provincial run was over.

Curtis Sibley, who scored three runs during the game, was MVP.

With Kody Dzurka scoring for Bruno at the top of the eighth and Adam Wilson scoring for Carnduff in the bottom of the eighth for a 3-3 tie – and no lights on the field – the game was paused, to resume again Saturday morning, August 10.

The ninth inning Saturday morning saw no runs for Bruno while Danny Pool scored for Carnduff, giving the Astros the 4-3 win.

Game MVP was Garret Fiztpatrick.
