Two nights after Delta Senior Secondary’s James Paxton made his major league debut for the Seattle Mariners, another D.S.S. alum went for the Canadians as they played a winner take all game against the Boise Hawks for the Northwest League title.

Apologies for the verbose title, but it really is rather massive isn’t it?

The result means that the second playoff spot will come down to the best overall record. By holding the tiebreaker, the Canadians were, once […]
