The Corn­wall River Rats ‘ A’ coach-pitch team fin­ished off a great sea­son by win­ning the 2017 Corn­wall tour­na­ment, de­feat­ing Or­leans 16-9 in the ‘A’ fi­nal.

Corn­wall fin­ished first in roundrobin, with a per­fect 3-0 record, on wins against East Ne­pean 168, NDG 24-9, and Or­leans 13-6.

In the semi­fi­nal the next morn­ing, the River Rats needed a mas­sive come­back and ex­tra in­nings to de­feat Ne­pean.

Down 17-10 with two in­nings re­main­ing, Corn­wall ral­lied with a pair of five-run in­nings to tie the game at 20.

The de­fence shut down Ne­pean in the top of the last in­ning, be­fore scor­ing in the bot­tom half to take the game 21-20.

The vic­tory set up an­other meet­ing with Or­leans, the sixth of the year.
