Vanessa Riopel (Repentigny, QC) turned in a solid performance on the mound as her Québec team cruised to a 13-1 win over Nova Scotia to open the Senior Women’s Invitational. Jessica Bérubé (Québec, QC) had a huge day at the plate for Québec as she went 3-for-5 with 2 runs scored and 4 RBI. Karine Paré (Val-Des-Monts, QC) and Amélie Julien (Québec, QC) also collected three hits each for the Québec. The only blemish on Riopel's day was a single, Nova Scotia’s only hit of the game, and one walk through 5 innings of work.

Kathryn Kennaley (Burlington, ON) scored the winning run in the bottom of the 9th as Ontario edged BC 4-3 in extra innings.
