Cards had 12 hits, and committed 0 errors.
Game 1 -- A good pitching performance from Jacob Narbonne (7 IP, 5 Ks, 1 run, 2 BB) and hits scattered throughout the lineup led the Cardinals to the win in their first game in Kalispell, MT.

Cyr with a triple, an rbi, and 3 runs scored, Scammell 2 singles, 2 rbi, and 3 runs scored, and Fergusson a single and 3 runs scored were setting the table for Smith in the clean up spot who drove in 4 runs.

June 21, 2009
Cardinals history was made today as Cards 2 scored 4 runs in the first and 3 more in the second and held on to the victory over Cardinals team 1 8-4 in semi-final action at the Devries. In the top of the first inning 2 walks followed by consecutive singles by Kosolofski, Fergusson, Smith and Scammell put 4 runs on the board. In the 3rd an error, a walk, and RBI singles by Smith and Langley put 3 more runs on the board. That was enough runs for player of the game Ryan Kosolofski as he scattered 3 hits and struck out six for the complete game victory. The senior Cards mounted a late comeback scoring 2 unearned runs in both the sixth and the seventh but their rally fell short.
In the final game of the Devries, the Spruce Grove starter outdueled Cardinals Mitchell St.Laurent to lead the Sox to victory 5-2 in a well pitched game. Cyr with 2 singles, Fergusson, Gazley, Scammell, and Smith with 1 single each was all the offence the Cards could manage. Player of the game for the Cards was Tylar Heigh who made some nice defensive plays behind the dish and drew a walk.

May 25th, 2009.
The pitchers just continue to try to outshine each other. Ryan Kosolofski gave up 2 unearned runs in the 2nd inning and took a no hitter into the eighth inning striking out twelve along the way. Unfortunately it wasn't meant to be as the Cards gave up 5 runs in the top of 8 to lose the final 7-2 to the Great Falls Black Sox. Cards scored two in the bottom of the first but couldn't solve the opposing pitcher who threw 2 complete games against us with one day rest in between.
May 24th, 2009.
Today's morning game played in light rain throughout. Grover and Craig combined for the 11-1 victory on the mound. The evening game was played in excellent conditions and the defence was solid in the 10-1 victory behind the 74 pitch complete game by Mitch St.Laurent.
