Castor completed the round robin with an 18-9 win against Devon, 15-6 win against Edson and a tight 12-11 loss to Coronation. Castor finished second in their pool and faced Strathcona in the semi-final. Kaleb Bozek hit the mound to start the game against Strathcona and Boston Slemp finished the game off leading the Castor Raiders to an 11-4 victory and a spot in the championship game.

Coronation faced Sherwood Park in the other semi-final, after being down 8-5, they came back and won 12-8. Castor and Coronation were to face off for the fourth time this season to claim the gold medal. Coronation got off to a quick 5-0 lead in the first inning. Castor slowly started to catch up and went into the top of the sixth inning down 8-4.

The Raiders were on the bats quickly in the sixth with a couple quick runs to bring the game to 8-6 then Lachlan Hanton hit a bomb into the outfield to bring in two runs and tie the game. Drew Bagshaw scored the winning run on a single that turned into a home run due to Coronation errors.

Coronation had last bat and the Raiders had Damon Ries on the mound. Damon showed composure like no other and had three straight outs leading the Raiders to a dramatic finish and the gold medal.
