Senior Terriers Cny Thunder Classic Champions For The Second Consecutive Year
Syracuse, NY - The 18u Terrier battled their way to their second championship of the summer with a convincing 12-2 and 7-4 wins in Rome, NY.
After finishing pool play as the 3rd seed, the Terriers sent Dayton Dawe to the mound in the semi-final.
Dawe battled through 4 innings and left with a comfy 12-2 lead. Zac Sardellitti led the Terrier offense with 4 hits and 5 RBI’s. Steven Jannetta added 3 hits and 3 RBI’s, while Brian Doran, Cole Peragine, Jordan Mountford and Nate Desouza all continued to swing a hot stick. Brock Bierness finished this one striking out the side in the home half of the 5th.
In the final, Eric Hall battled his way through some shaky defence, and survived into the fourth leading 6-3. Brian Doran doubled home Cole Peragine’s lead off single in the 1st inning. Back to back to back hits by Desouza, Mountford and Sardellitti had the Terriers up 3-0 after one. A booming double by David Head added to the lead in the 3rd, as Doran came around to score again. The Terriers added a run on a Steven Jannetta ground out, another Head double was cashed in on a Jordan Mountford fielder’s choice.
Aaron Bain came out of the Terrier bullpen to save Hall’s win. Bain went 3 and 1/3 and only allowed 2 hits.
The Terriers remain in New York for the remainder of the week for their final Summer Showcase tournament.
