via the Chronicle Herald
Davie stole home on Dartmouth reliever Jeff Reeves in the top of the ninth inning for the deciding run as the Canadians came away with a 5-4 victory over the host Moosehead Dry in the opener of the best-of-seven championship Thursday night at Beazley Field.
Game 2 is Saturday at Halifax. The series returns to Dartmouth for Game 3 on Sunday.
The Canadians, behind starting pitcher Barrett Bellefontaine, built a 4-1 advantage through six innings. But the Dry drew even with a three runs in the bottom half of the seventh.
Bellefontaine, Halifax’s ace lefthander, left the game in the seventh with a possible arm injury. His status for the remainder of the series is unknown.
Shawn Peverill had a double and a single for Halifax, while Adam Lucas, Josh Pelham and Shawn Walsh each had two singles.
Colin Johnson and Greg West had homers for the Dry.
