Impressive Showing in Vaughan Tournament
With the Royals still not having played an Intercounty game due to the weather not co-operating they entered their second tournament of the year looking to make it to the finals again. This time though they were beaten in the semi-finals by a run.

Game One on Friday night saw the Royals play the East York Bulldogs and win a nail biter by a 8-7 score. Trystan Dennie started on the mound going 3 innings before giving way to Mitchell Van Braeckel who threw the last four. This game came down to the last inning as Guelph trailed by 3 to tie and 4 to win. With Guelph getting to within 2 runs on Dennie's base hit, Cody Graham came up with the bases full and drove a double to the right center gap clearing the bases bringing home three runs giving them the win. Nick Lannutti had a single and a double with 2 RBI's, Jordon Inkol had an RBI and Van Braeckel helped himself with a double which brought home a run. Lucas Smit had a single and a double and Daryn Blacklock had a hit.

Saturday morning Guelph beat the Barrie Red Sox 12-2 scoring three runs in the first and nine in third innings going the 5 innings via the mercy rule. Starting pitcher Peter Zytner was on fire fanning 11 batters allowing just 2 hits with 2 runs and only walking 1 batter. Zytner only needed 72 pitches for the win. On offense Lannutti continued to pound out hits this time hitting 2 doubles driving in four runs in the process. Blaise Shaw had a hit and 2 runs batted in, Zytner helped his own cause with a run batted in while another run came in on a miscue and Inkol had a run batted in. Smit kept hitting well with two, Dennie had 2 hits, Derek Gray had a hit and Blacklock had a hit.

Later on Saturday Guelph won big beating the Ajax A's 21-1 in 5 innings. Jacob Kush threw 3 and 2/3rd innings while Inkol closed the game going 1 and a 1/3rd. Dennie had the big bat this game belting out two triples, a double and a single in five plate appearences finishing with 5 runs batted in. Dennie scored a run on a passed ball as well. Noah Mackillop the Bishop Mac student hit a triple and two singles finishing with 4 runs batted in and scored on a passed ball.

Lannutti had a hit and walked three times.

In their semi-final game on Sunday morning Guelph lost to the Markham Mariners 7-6. Markham pushed a run across in the top of the seventh to win. Dwyer returning from a school trip threw 81 pitches over 5 innings before giving way to Shaw who finished the game. On offense Gray's double down the left field line scored 2 runs while Jacob Kush had 2 runs score on his base hit. Dwyer helped himself out by driving home a run. He finished with 2 hits.
