Terriers Shock New Mexico Military Institute!
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Friday, September 26, 2008
The Terriers opened the Rising Sun Showcase Tournament in Arizona on Friday with a very well played 5-1 victory over the New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI).

The tournament includes 20 junior college and high school age travel teams from states such as California, Utah, Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona. The Terriers are the only team from Canada. The NMMI is based out of Roswell New Mexico, and had won their first game of pool play over BMP from Sacramento California. Terriers pitching was outstanding in this one, starting with right hander Jas Rakkar. He struck out five and did not allow a run. Jas dominated the older competition with a great mix of 85-86 mph fastballs and hard breaking curves. Lefty Austin Huibers also threw three excellent innings, allowing one unearned run. Impressive considering Austin is sixteen years old, pitching in some cases to 20 and 21 year old men. Clean up hitter Donovan Latour had the hot bat for the dogs on this scorching 40 degree day. He would get an RBI single in the first inning, cashing third baseman Joel Stubbs, who had singled and advanced on a fielders choice. The Terriers big inning came in the second when they loaded the bases on back to back singles by Kevin Nickel and Jeff Hunt. After a Graeme Scott walk, Nathan Loehle pounded a shot through the NMMI short stops legs for a 3-0 lead. Stubbs followed with a single, then Latour a double and two more RBIs. 5-0 Terriers after two. The excellent pitching and sharp defense continued through six innings, giving way to right hander Jeff Hunt to close out the 5-1 victory. Next up, an 8:30pm MT tilt with the Las Vegas Metros.
