Black Sox coach Eddie Kohlhase is still happy despite his side being beaten 4-3 twice by the Hill United Chiefs, in Brantford, Ontario.
It was the side's first losses of their North American tour, after the side had opened the tour with wins against clubs sides the Alviston Indians and the St Thomas Major Fastpitch League All Stars in Ontario.
"The game was there to be won, but we failed to execute at crucial times," Kohlhase said.
"This is only games three and four and we will get better every game, this is why we are here to learn and put our game plan into practice."
Among the players that did impress despite the outcomes were Wayne Laulu, Nathan Nukunuku, Jerome Raemaki and Ben Enoka. In the first game, Laulu hit a home run while in the second Nukunuku, Raemaki and Enoka impressed with the bat and their base-running.
The side's next games are against the Argentina national side in Ontario tomorrow, before the Legends tournament in Kitchener, Ontario.
The North American tour is the final international competition for the Black Sox before the team is named in December for the world championship, which will be held at Auckland's Rosedale Park in March.
