17U Terriers Tie And Win
After bad weather wiped out their doubleheader on Saturday in Welland, the 17U Terriers took on the Bullet Proof Prospects at home on Sunday afternoon. Game one ended in a scoreless tie as both pitchers combined to strike out 17 batters. Kyle Scobel went the distance for the Terriers striking out nine while issuing just one walk. Scobel needed just 91 pitches and a little over an hour to complete the game.

Shane Clarke had the only hit for the Terriers. Defensively Sharan Rasan and Ashton Roy made outstanding catches in the early going to keep the Prospects off the board. Game two was an entirely different game, ending in an 8-7 Terriers victory. After several lead changes catcher Joe Tevlin finally scored the game winning run in the bottom of the seventh. Offensively the Juniors cranked out nine hits capped off by Roy's towering two run homerun to right centrefield. Roy finsihed the game 3 for 3 with a walk and a two doubles. Rob Cant added a single, triple and two runs scored while Elliott Curtis had two singles and a run scored. Mason Falbo and Sharan Rasan rounded out the offense with a singles. Duncan Jakubowski, Tyler Riehl, Christian Lazar and Konnar Smith all threw with Smith picking up the win. The Terriers improve to 5-0-1 on the season and are in action again this weekend.
