SUMMERSIDE - The Scarborough Wolverines took home the most awards with four, but it was Newfoundland and Labrador’s Kelly’s Pub Canadians ace Sean Cleary walking away with the coveted Tournament MVP award at the 2007 Causeway Bay Softball Canada Junior Men’s fast pitch championship Friday night.
The awards were presented prior to the start of the playoff round and the first game between the first place, undefeated Kelly’s Pub and Elmira Advance Millwright.

"We had a good week so far," Cleary said. "But it doesn’t mean nothing right now. Everything we’ve done to this point is erased."
Kelly’s Pub second basemen Ryan Boland earned the second award for his team, hauling in an all star second base award while batting .368 and a fielding percentage of 1.000.
Jason Hill was getting the ball for NL in their playoff game Friday night with Elmira. Dan Martin was providing the opposition.
Andrew Putnam of the Scarborough Wolverines was named the week-long tournament’s top pitcher. He was a unanimous choice, after going 4-0 with a 0.48 ERA while fanning 37 batters.

- Jason Hill left the 2007 Causeway Bay Softball Canada Junior Men’s championship in style Friday night, leading Newfoundland and Labrador’s Kelly’s Pub Canadians past Elmira Advance Millwright 8-4 in the first playoff game at the 2007 Causeway Bay Softball Canada Junior Men’s fast pitch championship.
Hill leaves Saturday morning to join his International Softball Congress team the Farm Tavern of Wisconsin at the ISC World Tournament in Kitchener.
He made a lasting impression of how powerful his bat can be, going a perfect 3-for-3 with two singles, a double, a walk and two RBI.
Brad Ezekiel was also perfect at the plate in three at bats, driving home a run. Justin Gill (2-5, three runs scored), Stephen Strapp (1-4, RBI) and Ken Gosse (1-3, two RBI) were also hot at the dish for the defending champions.
Elmira scored three runs on errors to NL first basemen Gary Bruce, followed by a passed ball by catcher Stephen Strapp in their half of the second.
It all happened after what appeared to be a third out for the inning. Pitcher Sean Cleary threw to Bruce, who bobbled the ball as he and the Elmira runner, Josh Brohman (1-4), made contact. This allowed Ben Wideman (1-3) and Ron Dean (2-3, RBI) to be plated on the play giving the Ontario runner ups a 3-2 lead. Jack McLaren, losing pitcher Dan Martin and Travis Martin each had 1-for-3 summaries.
MVP Sean Cleary went the distance giving up four runs - one earned - on seven hits while sitting down eight.
Martin pitched a complete game, surrendering eight runs - five earned - on 12 hits while walking six.
NL had a chance to open the scoring much more then they did, loading the bases in each of the third, sixth and seventh innings but failing to cash the runners in.
Kelly's Pub will now await the winner of the Saskatchewan and Scarborough game at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.
