The Coulter team almost did not play the year of 1968. Before the season it seemed there were not enough players. But a trio of “recruits” from nearby Elva helped keep Coulter in the South West League. To earn a spot in League play-offs, the Coulter team had to win their final game, which they managed to do. This was the first of a series of dramatic must win games. They had win-or-go-home victories against both Goodlands and Waskada in League play-offs. Provincial play-offs featured sudden death triumphs over Elgin and Sundown. This put Coulter in the five game Provincial Final against the very good Thompson Reds team assembled by Red Sangster. Coulter was beaten handily in the two games in Thompson and then in the first of the games at home. This was the end of the season for the Coulter Red Sox. But what a season!
