16U Wins Brawl In The Fall
Cambridge, ON - The 16U Terriers kicked off their Fall schedule this past weekend when they hosted their annual Brawl in the Fall. The Terriers finished the weekend undefeated after claiming the championship with a thrilling 9-8 win over Team Ontario. After squandering an 8-6 lead in the top of the 7th inning, Luke Tevlin got things started in the home half of the inning when he was hit by a pitch.

Second baseman Michael Moffat then roped a one out single to right field to move Tevlin to third. After Moffat stole second to force the Team Ontario infield to play in, leadoff hitter Curtis Windsor belted a single past the second baseman to score Tevlin, sealing the Terriers third Brawl in the Fall Championship in the last four years. Short stop Matthew Plut was the offensive and defensive leader in this game. At the plate, Plut was 2-2 with two walks, three runs scored and two stolen bases. In the field, Plut made several plays but none more important than a highlight reel play in the top of the sixth to nail a baserunner rounding third for the last out of the inning. Kristian Trunzer and Moffat also had two hits apiece while Brandon Paul and Austin Guzzo chipped in with doubles. Andrew Lonsdale and Paul Gibson both added singles. Earlier in the tournament, the Terriers tied Team Ontario 8-8 before beating Ottawa 25-2, the Toronto Mets 10-7 and the Terriers 15U 11-4.
