15S Split Home Opener
The 15U Terriers opened the PBLO season with the Ontario Royals and split the double-header on what was a cold windy day at Kings College.
After dropping game one 5-3, the freshman Terriers rebounded in a big way in game two with a convincing 10-0 win.
The big rally came in the fourth inning when five Terriers crossed to put the game away and seal the victory. Hayden Wesseling got it going with a lead off single that eluded the Royals second baseman.
After Evan Farrell and Liam Carey reached on errors, Ethan Magloughlin stepped in and smashed a three RBI triple into the left field corner, clearing the bases.
Markus Stepanoff followed with an RBI double to the gap and then Ben Baker cracked a single to score Markus and round out the inning.
John Filice mowed down the Royals in the five inning game that ended in the mercy rule. He struck out five in four innings of outstanding work. Jackson Evans tossed the fifth, striking out one.
In the game one 5-3 loss Jackson Evans (2B), Kevin McQuinn (1B, 2SB, RBI, RS), Daniel Freeman (1B, RBI) Ethan Magloughlin (2B) and Ben Baker (2B, 1B, SB, RS) all had hits. Hayden Wesseling fired two scoreless innings on the mound to keep the game close.
Terriers 15U PBLO play continues next weekend when the Terriers face London.
