The Clearview Crushers (3-3) and the Ennismore James Gang (0-6) met in a rematch from the previous night at the Robert E. Young Recreational Complex Sunday afternoon.  The Crushers won 8-5 on Saturday night. 

While Clearview won the game, Ennismore was able to keep up for the majority of the game.  The James Gang were still looking for their first win of the season, and hoped the matinee event would be one.

Once again the Ennismore team showed they can hang with their opponents for the majority of the game.  Holden Lowes (3g,1a) and Taylor Dooley (2g,2a) led Ennismore with thier biggest offensive output of the season.

The Crushers came away with the 12-9 victory sweeping the weekend series.
