The Southeast Legacy Twins met with some success at the annual midget AAA selects baseball tournament in Moose Jaw on the weekend.
The Twins won their first three games before losing their last to one of the top teams in Saskatchewan.
Twins head coach Tom Copeland said his team was solid defensively and did a decent job all-around.
"We got out of some jams. We continue to do that very well," he said. "We pitched reasonably well, probably not their best performances but it's mostly the second time out (this season for each Twins pitcher)."
The Twins started by edging Okotoks 4-3 in their tournament opener on Saturday morning.
They followed that up with another tight win, 5-4 over the Regina Mets, as the Twins rallied for three runs in the top of the sixth inning.
The Twins won yet another one-run contest on Sunday morning, defeating the Saskatoon Cubs 6-5. The Cubs had beaten the Twins twice in a doubleheader one week earlier.
In their final round-robin game, the Twins lost 9-4 to the Regina Athletics, a team Copeland described as a powerhouse.
"The Regina A's are the team to beat in the province," he said.
The Twins finished in a three-way tie atop their pool but lost the tie-breaker.
Copeland said he's happy with his team's weekend but cautioned that it will get harder.
"One of the things that'll happen is because we were a last-place club (last year), we don't necessarily see the best pitchers. That'll start to change."
Carver Krafchuk led the Twins at the plate, hitting 5-for-13 with three stolen bases and getting on base 10 times.
Estevan's Austin Orsted went 4-for-12 with three runs batted in and a stolen base, while Bienfait's Lucas Lafrentz was 4-for-8 with a stolen base and two runs scored.
