Port Elgin opened the scoring in the first when Maas walked and came home on Mike Reilly's triple.
Owen Sound tied it in the bottom of the third when right fielder Lucas Lind walked, was sacrificed to second and and scored on Matt Kuhl's rbi single.
The Midget Selects also turned two difficult double plays to aid winning pitcher Jamie Simpson who gave up 3 hits and struck out 5 over 7 innings.
Matt Hamilton took the loss for Port Elgin.
