Terriers 17'S Shut Out University Of Waterloo In Debut
The 17u Terriers played their first ever game Saturday at the Laurier Invitational tournament and came away with a very impressive 3-0 victory.
Right hander Mike Morely got the start and was outstanding through four innings of work.
He was staked to an early 1-0 lead when Aaron Loder led off the bottom of the first with a sharp double to right field. He would advance to third on an error, then score on catcher Hunter Galloway's RBI ground out to second base.
The Terriers tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the fourth courtesy of an Averey Bet-Payumo monster home run over the left field fence. Robert Grilli followed that up with a double, but was stranded.
Terriers pitching and defence would dominate the rest of the way, as lefty Bryce Schumilus shut down the Warriors for the final three innings. The game was highlighted by several outstanding defensive plays by Terriers third baseman Cal Quantrill. Cal had five assists and was the front man on two inning ending double plays that snuffed Waterloo threats. Cal also chipped in with a single.
Tournament play continues for the 17s at 4pm Saturday.
