In the second game, the Saints eked out a single run win to sweep Humber. One run in each of the 1st and 4th innings was enough for a 2-1 victory.

The following day, St Clair hosted the Durham Lords for a double-header at Lacasse.

In game 1, Teiden Frias pitched 6 complete innings, striking out 10 while allowing just 2 hits as St Clair won 3-0.
