The Terriers summer tournament schedule got off to a great start with a Championship at the Mets Canada Day Classic Tournament in Toronto. The final had the Terriers matched against Team Ontario. Right hander Ted Hall took the mound and gave his team three and two thirds innings of quality work.

The narrow lead was in jeopardy in the top of the fourth when Team Ontario threatened with two on and two out, but Lucas Scocchia came on to snuff the rally with a strike out. In the bottom of the fourth, Brian Doran and Mattingly Romanin both singled, setting the table for a perfect sacrifice bunt by catcher Aaron Wagner. With runners at second and third, Graham Tebbit came off the bench to pitch hit and gave the Terriers a 3-0 lead when he launched a massive home run over the left field fence. The Terriers tacked on three more insurance runs for the 6-0 victory. Anthony Vacca continued to swing a hot bat with two more hits and an RBI. Mattingly Romanin, Aaron Wagner and Brian Doran also had two hits in the final. Simon Clarke wrapped up a fantastic tournament with a single, and 2 RBIs in the final.
