They followed that with a strong performance over the Philippines 11-1 before beating the US West region team 8-1.  In the fifth game against Oregon, Team Canada had a resounding 9-1 win.

Kylie, one of the team’s pitchers, led batting with most hits and a .545 per cent batting parentage with an on-base percentage of .600 per cent.

The Little League Softball World Series Facebook fan page posted the final Canadian standing:

“The girls won their last three games and finished 5th overall. An amazing accomplishment. The entire country is very proud of your efforts.”
