Maddin left the contest trailing 3-1, the Cardinal run coming in the third inning as the runner from third scored as the 57s recorded an out at first on a bunt.

Garrett Houston came into the game in relief for Yorkton. The Melville-born pitcher went two innings allowing four hits and giving up five runs, all of them earned in the ninth.

Tyler Murphy started, and went the distance for Swift Current. He handled the Cardinal batters to the point of allowing only three hits and the one run. It was earned. Murphy did not walk a better, while striking out nine.
