The Moose Jaw All-Stars will have an extra off day to explore southern Ontario and they have Mother Nature to thank for it.
The first two games of at the Little League Canadian Championship in Ancaster, Ont. were rained out on Tuesday, including the All-Stars match-up with the B.C. representative from Coquitlam and the early afternoon meeting between Ontario's Ottawa West and Quebec's Mirabel Diamond Academy.
Both contests will now be played on the rain-out day Thursday, with times to be determined.
Moose Jaw currently holds an 0-4 record at the tournament.
Interestingly enough, there's still an outside chance the All-Stars could find themselves in a tiebreaker if things work out their way – should they win their final two games and get a ton of help, four teams could finish tied with 2-4 records and tied for the fourth and last playoff spot.
Quebec and B.C. are tied for first at 4-0 heading into play Tuesday, with Ontario at 3-1, Atlantic 2-3, Alberta 1-3, Ancaster 1-4 and the All-Stars 0-4.
Wins over B.C. and Alberta would improve Moose Jaw to 2-4. Should Ancaster defeat Alberta Tuesday night and Alberta then defeat Atlantic Wednesday, that would create the four-teams-with-two-wins tiebreaker scenario.
