Tropical Storm Erika[edit]

The final day of competition at the 2015 edition was cancelled due to the weather conditions and the imminent passage of Tropical Storm Erika through Puerto Rico. This resulted in the final two games of the tournament between Dominican Republic-Brazil and Argentina-Puerto Rico to not be played. This meant the only team of the five to play all four of their games was Canada, but since they had already collected 8 points behind a 4-0 record, they already secured first place, thus resulting in Canada being named champions of the 2015 edition.
