New Look Terriers Begin Fall Season

Terriers started the fall season off with a split of the first four games of a five game series over Labour Day weekend in Trois Rivieres, Quebec. The Terriers opened their fall schedule against the College Leflesche Dragons. All four games were very close and low scoring, as both teams pitching staffs dominated. In game one Friday night the Terriers would squeak out a 3-1 victory, backstopped by excellent pitching from righthanders Lucas Scocchia and Matt Betts. The game was scoreless into the fourth when shortstop Brandon Dailey led the inning off with a triple to the right center field gap. He would score on a Cole Peragine fielders choice to give the Terriers a 1-0 lead. In the sixth, the Dailey- Peragine tandem would hook up again for another run, after Brandon walked, then went all the way to third on an attempted pick off. Cole then counted his second RBI of the night with a single through the left side. The Dragons pulled to within one in the bottom of the sixth, but the Terriers regained their two run lead in the top of the seventh. Brian Doran lead the inning off with a walk, then advanced on a Simon Clarke single. DH Orion Katayama extended the inning with an infield single, loading the bases. Shawn Marshall was next in and he battled for a bases loaded walk for a 3-1 Terriers lead. Matt Betts retired the side in order in the bottom half of the seventh to preserve the win. The game was highlighted by Blair Gignac's solid defense in center field, recording five put outs including a laser beam throw to catcher Adam Godo to snuff a Dragons rally in the third inning. The Terriers wasted a great pitching performance in game two from lefty Austin Huibers, falling 2-1. Austin struck out six in three innings of work. The Dragons would also win game three by a 6-4 margin. Graham Tebbit had started that one, and dominated for four innings, striking out seven. He left the game with the score tied 1-1, however it unraveled for the Terriers in the fifth after Graham had given way to the bullpen. Outstanding pitching was once again the recipe for a Terriers win in game four. Roberto Suppa started and was dominant for four innings, allowing only two opposite field hits. He walked only one Dragon batter while striking out five. With a 3-0 Terriers lead in the fifth, Roberto handed the ball over to Aaron Bain. Aaron cruised through his three innings of work, giving up just one single. The big offensive blow in this Terriers victory came off the bat of Blair Gignac. With the bases loaded in the fourth inning, Blair laced a double into the right field corner, scoring Orion Katayama and Anthony Vacca. The Terriers will play a fifth game in Trois Rivieres on Sunday afternoon before heading home for a week that will include a practice, then their Annual Brawl in the Fall tournament next weekend.
