Jeremie Veilleux came up with the game winning walk off RBI single, scoring Ryan O'Halloran for a perfect 2-0 day. The 15U Terriers won both their games by scores of 13-5 and 6-4. In game one John Filice picked up the win on the mound, going four and two thirds while striking out six Total Baseball Academy hitters. John also had two hits including a double and a two RBI single. Short-stop Jakob Cellupica had three hits and scored twice and had an RBI. Multi hit games also went to Ben Baker, Markus Stepanoff, Daniel Freeman and ‎Kevin McQuinn. Evan Farrell closed out the game on the hill. Game two was a come from behind 6-4 win over the Michigan Bulls. Right-hander Liam Carey had a great outing on the mound in the victory. He went five and a third, striking out four. Kawshik Murali came on to get the final five outs. A five run Terriers rally in the sixth was the difference in this game. Jakob Cellupica, Daniel Freeman, Jackson Evans, Ethan Magloughlin and Evan Farrell all crossed in the inning that led to the win. The 17U Terriers had just one game Saturday and fell 8-7. Udhay Bal had three hits while Dylan Johnson and Max Von Gemmingen‎ each had two in the loss. In 16U action the Terriers split a pair of games. Game one was a tough 3-2 loss to the Michigan Monarchs. ‎The Terriers had eight hits in the game and got the tying run to second base in the bottom of the seventh but couldn't push it across. Dante Wright, Michael Stremlaw, Liam Bavington, Jack Iannuzzi, Michael Manning, Connor O'Halloran and Matt Ward‎ counted hits in the loss. Game two was a 10-6 win over Total Baseball Academy. The Terriers trailed 5-3 going into the fifth but smacked five hits in the inning to turn the game around. Michael Stremlaw led off with a triple and eventually scored on Dante Wright's bullet up the middle. Matt Ward who was hit by a pitch also scored on the play to make it 5-5. The big blow of the inning came off the bat of Jack Iannuzzi, a three run triple into the left field corner. Ayden Cooke scored Iannuzzi later in the inning with a single to right to make it 9-5. Michael Manning also had a hit in the inning. Connor O'Halloran scored the tenth Terrier run on an RBI single to right by Brayden Heleno.
