Junior Terriers Continue Us Tour With College Workouts; Buckeye Elite Game One Victory
After recording a 3-2 record at the 16U Sandlott World Series in Tennesse, the Junior Terriers made their way to Columbus, Ohio on Monday morning to compete in the 64 team Buckeye Elite Tournament.
Before they left Tennesse, however, the Juniors stopped off at perennial Junior College powerhouse, Volunteer State in Gallatin, Tennessee for a workout.
After two off-days, both the 16U and 18u teams faced off in an intra-squad game at Bob Wren Stadium, home of the Division 1 Ohio Bobcats in Athens, Ohio. Team gold prevailed 4-2 over Team Blue after scoring 2 runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.
In game one of the Buckeye Elite on Thursday afternoon, the Junior Terriers scored early and often against Premier Blue, winning 12-0. Lucas Scocchia started the game and threw two scoreless innings, giving up one hit and striking out three.
Offensively, centre fielder Blair Gignac reached base three times with a triple and two hit by pitches, scoring three runs. Brian Doran had two hits and two RBI's while short stop Cole Peragine chipped in with a pair of base hits and an RBI. The other hits went to Jake Zuk, Adam Godo, Brendan Hutchings, Ron Breutigam and Mattignly Romanin. Other RBI's were credited to Godo (2), Zuk and Romanin.
The Terriers face the Jackson Polar Bears and Cincinatti Tribe on Friday afternoon to round out pool play.
