The top two seeds in the Junior Boys' Team event at the Scotiabank Canadian Junior and Cadet Open, being staged in the city of Markham in the Greater Toronto area, duly progressed the final following semi-final successes on Wednesday October 3, 2012.
Chinese Taipei, with Lee Chia-Sheng and Liao Chen-Ting on duty, overcame the Argentina's Juan Daher and Pablo Saragovi to reserve their place in the final; while Canada 1, fielding Chen Hongtao and James Pintea defeated colleagues Vincent Rousseau-Emond of Canada 2.
Success for North America and that was also the case in the Cadet Boys' Team event.

A place in the final booked in an impressive manner; it was the same for Canada 1 who accounted for ITTF-North America by three matches to nil.
Moxi Guo beat Filip Ilijevski (11-4, 11-8, 11-8) and Jeremy Hazin overcame Alexander Moran (11-7, 11-5, 11-5) with the partnership of Moxi Guo and Jeremy Hazin bringing matters to a conclusion.
