SUMMERSIDE, PEI – On Saturday at the 2021 Atlantic Baseball Challenge Girls 16U in Summerside, PEI Team NL and Team NS did battle twice, in the last round robin game (12:00 PM) and then again in the 1 vs 2 game (3:00 PM) of the page play-off format.

In the last round robin game at 12:00 PM both teams came out swinging and a lot of runs were scored early. However due to a Team NL player injury and a lengthy delay in the 3rd inning both teams in consultation with the Host committee agreed to stop the game and call it a tie as both teams were going to be in the 1 vs. 2 play-off game at 3:00 PM.
