Flint scores first CANUSA road victory since 1959


Flint, Michigan for the first time since 1959, scored a road victory in the 54th CANUSA Games as it edged Hamilton 7-6 in 13 categories of competition on Saturday (Aug. 6). Hamilton’s last road win came in 2000.

Flint’s margin of victory was provided by its 637-635 point victory in Track and Field, a 302.65-299.85 point win in Gymnastics, coupled with its 3-3 tie (which goes to the visiting team) in Volleyball. Flint’s win evens the series at 25-25 with four ties after 54 years.

The Games were played on Friday and Saturday at various Hamilton venues. Next year, the games will be played in Flint, in keeping with the schedule of alternating sites yearly.

Hamilton’s six wins were in Darts (93-53), Soccer (14-3-1), Golf (24-23), Skeet (984-950), Swimming (688-396) and Tennis (7-6). Flint was victorious in 10-pin Bowling (169-47), Baseball (6-2), Basketball (20-6), Gymnastics (302.65-299.85), Softball (5-1), Track and Field (637-635), and Volleyball (3-3).

The Mayor’s Competition, which underscores the friendly nature of the Games, was an 8-8 draw in Batting. Hamilton Councillor Sam Merulla represented Mayor Bob Bratina in the showdown against Flint Mayor Dayne Walling.

In exhibition sports, which don’t count towards the point totals, Hamilton won both events – Flag Football (3-1) and Hockey (5-1).
