Terriers Split Home Opener
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, May 6, 2007
On a sunny festive day at Dickson Park in Cambridge, the Inter County Terriers and the Toronto Mets treated the fans to two, tight, hotly contested ball games. Both games ended with 2-1 scores. After the opening ceremonies, which included the introduction of 22 Terrier alumni from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80's and a beautiful live performance of ‘Oh Canada’ by local recording artist Glenn Groves the pitchers took over and dominated for both sides.

A tremendous 6 innings by Terriers starter Billy Martin was wasted in game one, as a couple of defensive mistakes resulted in a 2-1 loss. Billy gave up just two hits and had 9 strike outs. Mike Henry came on in the 7th and pitched out of a jam right in the heart of the Toronto order. Chad Marshall reached base in the bottom of the 7th but was left stranded. In game two, Brad Furdal was the starter. He went 5 strong innings and left the game with the score tied 1-1. The Terriers run came on a clutch two out RBI by Jeff Hunt in the 4th, scoring Jeff Skelhorne-Gross, who had reached on a HBP. Terrell Alliman singled in the bottom of the 6th and then stole second. Jeff Hunt then hit a ball to the right side, causing the Toronto first baseman to have to flip it to the pitcher covering first, but the play was botched, resulting in Terrell scoring from second base on a head first slide at home. Canicius College bound Brian Burton came on to pitch and close out the game. He was outstanding, getting a ground ball double play to get out of the 6th and eventually ended the game with a blazing fastball for a strikeout in the 7th. Defensive highlights included several sparkling plays by Stony Brook University recruit, short stop Chad Marshall. Next action is at 7:00pm Wednesday night at Riverside Park in Cambridge vs the London Badgers, then the Terriers head to Ottawa for a 4 game set Saturday and Sunday.
