The Saskatoon Smokin' Guns, in their first Senior AA provincials, capture the championship in style. With strong starting pitching, big rallies and great defense, the Guns cruised to the final undefeated and met the tourneys underdogs, Saskatoon Diggers, in the final. The Diggers, also on the heels of great pitching and tireless bats made it to the final undefeated as well. But in the end the Guns proved to be to much defeating the Diggers 7-3.
