Sr's Advance To Final, 15'S + 16'S In Semi
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, July 29, 2017
Windsor, Ontario In a wild game under the lights at Soulliere Stadium the SR Terriers defeated the Ottawa- Nepean Canadians by a 14-9 margin and advanced to the PBLO 18U Championship Game on Sunday afternoon in Windsor. Lefty Jack Anderson weaved his way through 4.2 innings before handing the ball off to Evan Harrison in the fifth who recorded the final seven outs.

In the top of the second inning the Terriers scored their first run of the game when Jeremie Veilleux reached on an E3, advanced on a wild pitch, went to third on a Jack Omstead fielder's choice then scored on a Nick Parsons ground ball to short. In the fourth three more Terriers crossed. Jack Omstead made it 2-0 on his own with a lead-off single and some help from some shabby Ottawa defense. The inning continued with three consecutive walks to Nolan Gallo, Owen Maize and Connor Humphrey. The walks led to the departure of the ONC starter. SS Jacob Martins was next in and he greeted the new Canadian's pitcher by lacing a two RBI single through the left side, scoring Gallo and Maize. 4-0 Terriers.‎ That was not enough however, as Ottawa scored one in the fourth and three in the fifth to tie the game. ‎In the top of the sixth the Terriers jumped back in front with a four hit assault resulting in four runs. Ben Abram, Jacob Martins, Ryan O'Halloran and Jeremie Veilleux all smacked singles. Jacob, Ryan and Jeremie also had RBI's and scored. Still not enough... In the bottom of the sixth five ONC runners crossed to make it 9-8. So, down to their final three outs the Terriers would need a seventh inning rally to get to Sunday's final. With one down Connor Humphrey, Jacob Martins and Ryan O'Halloran all drew walks, setting the table for a Jeremie Veilleux RBI sac fly to tie the game 9-9. Then with two out, Jack Omstead smashed a liner to right center for two RBI and an 11-9 lead. Nick Parsons picked up two more RBI and Ben Abram had one to make it 14-9. Evan Harrison put Ottawa away for good in the bottom of the seventh to seal the win. With the victory the SR's punched their ticket to the championship game Sunday afternoon at Cullen Stadium. In the 15U division the Terriers won their quarter final game 10-1 over London. They will play their semi final game on Sunday morning against Ottawa. In London the 16U Terriers defeated rival Ontario Royals in a tight 2-0 game. Left-hander Connor Carr- Matthews picked up the win on the mound. The 16s will play their semi- final Sunday morning against the Ontario Yankees.
