The Games started July 28 in Winnipeg.

Team B.C. went 3-3 in pool play, facing Alberta in their July 29 opener.

Playing third base, Ohlsen went one for two with a walk, but his team was beaten badly as Alberta scored a 12-2 win. Ohlsen was back at the hot corner later that day as Team B.C. evened their record with an 8-5 win over Quebec. Ohlsen had a productive outing, banging out a pair of singles, stealing a base and driving in a run.

The teenager had a rough time in a July 30 game vs Saskatchewan, striking out three times. But he got on base once with a walk and came around to score one of Team B.C.’s two runs in a 3-2 loss.

Ohlsen’s crew faced Alberta again July 31 and again coughed up 12 runs in a 12-7 loss. The Chilliwackian picked up a double and an RBI.

Team B.C. finished group play with back-to-back wins over Quebec and Saskatchewan.

Ohlsen had another single and another RBI in the 13-8 defeat of Quebec and delivered a single and a run in a 2-1 victory over Saskatchewan.

Team B.C., third in group A, faced Ontareio, second in group B, in a Thursday morning quarter-final. Ohlsen banged out a double, but his team was eliminated from gold-medal contention with a 3-1 loss.

The team wrapped up the tournament Thursday morning with a 7-3 win over Quebec.

— Chilliwack’s Isaac Goodwill and Santana McKay had a rough time in men’s softball as Team B.C. went 2-7, finishing ninth in the 10 team field.

— Spartan Swim Clubber Myles Wheeler is the last Chilliwackian due to compete.
