Strong Pitching & Offense Power 16U Terriers To Series Win
After finally receiving warm weather, the 16U Terriers took 3 of 4 games against the Oakville Royals last weekend. Backed by a strong pitching performance from Aaron Bain, the Terriers offense attacked early and often en route to an 11-0 game one victory on Saturday. Bain threw six innings, allowing just one hit while striking out one. On the offensive side, Lucas Scocchia led the way going 2 for 3 with 2 RBI's.

Jake Zuk continued his hot streak at the plate with two hits of his own and one RBI. Second baseman Mattingly Romanin came back strong after injuring his hand two weeks ago, going 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI. The Terriers stumbled in game two dropping a 4-1 decision. Short Stop Cole Peragine was the lone bright spot offensively, going 2 for 3 and singling in the only Terrier run. On Sunday afternoon in Burlington, the Terriers used a complete game shut out by Scocchia to defeat the Royals 4-0. Scocchia threw seven complete innings, striking out nine while not allowing a single runner to reach third base. Zuk lead the way with two hits and an RBI while Brian Doran chipped in with a double. Game four saw the Terriers explode for five runs in the third inning and take the game 12-2. Scocchia was 3 for 4 with two runs scored while Adam Godo went 2 for 3 with three RBI's. Matt Faulkner and Alex Halayko teamed up on the mound, giving up four hits and two runs. The Terriers will host Team Ontario in a make-up game on Wednesday night at Ninth Line. Game time is 7:30 pm.
