Terriers Hang Tough With Cgcc
After a double header sweep of Phoenix College, the Terriers faced Chandler Gilbert Community College late Tuesday afternoon in Mesa Arizona. Jas Rakkar would get the starting duties in game one.

After a rough first inning where the Coyotes would score 4 runs, Jas settled in and battled through four innings, facing a very physically potent lineup. He would eventually give way to Matt Betts, who threw scoreless innings in the fifth and sixth. Trailing 4-0 in the fifth the Terriers would scratch for two runs on hits by Joel Stubbs, Brandon Dailey and Tanner Nivins. 4-2 was as close as the Terriers would come in this one however. Coyotes Head Coach, Russ Luce had high praise between games for the Terriers quality play. He stated, "You guys are one of the soundest high school aged programs I have seen all summer." That is quite a compliment coming from a coach used to scouting top notch Arizona High School and travel teams. Game 2 of the DH goes at 6pm mountain time.
