Just one run made the difference as the Nelson Brewers had to settle for silver at the West Kootenay Minor Playoffs last weekend.

The Brewers fell 5-4 to the host Beaver Valley Blue Jays in Sunday’s final. The Brewers had previously hammered Grand Forks 15-4 on Friday before rolling past the Castlegar Royals 13-8 and Trail Mariners 9-2 on Saturday.

They downed the Nelson Pirates 11-4 on Sunday then defeated the Trail Dodgers 7-2 in the semi en route to the final of the 15-team tournament.
