Six Terriers Capture Gold At Canada Cup
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, August 12, 2018
Ontario defeated British Columbia by a score of 9-5 in the Gold Medal game of the 2018 17u Canada Cup National Championship Sunday night in Moncton, New Brunswick. Congratulations to Connor O'Halloran, Stephen Phillips, Campbell Ellis, Owen MacNeil, Dante Wright and Austin Gomm. These six Terriers made up almost one‎ third of the Ontario roster and they all played major roles on the road to the title. Ontario got off to a slow start in game one, a 2-0 loss to Quebec.

Lefty Campbell Ellis went five excellent innings in the opener, striking out three along the way. Unfortunately the offense couldn't get it going and the bullpen allowed two runs late in the opening game loss. Connor O'Halloran got the ball in game two versus Saskatchewan. ‎Ontario got in the win column with a 7-3 victory in this one. Connor struck out five and allowed just one hit. He walked only one. Short-stop Austin Gomm smashed a two run homer while Dante Wright had a hit and two RBI. Game three was a hard fought 3-1 nail-biter over BC. Austin Gomm was the hero in this one. With the game tied 1-1 in the seventh, Austin delivered a clutch two RBI single to get Ontario ‎the win. Stephen Phillips avenged the game one loss to Quebec in game four. He struck out four and gave up just one hit in a 17-0 ‎drubbing. Dante and Austin were at it again on the offensive side with Dante clubbing a three run home-run. Austin had a single, double and a triple along with an RBI. Ontario won their fourth straight in game five and once again ‎a Terrier was called upon to start the game on the mound. It was Owen MacNeil's turn in the rotation and he would get credit for the win in this contest. Owen fired four innings in a 5-3 Ontario victory over Saskatchewan. ‎Gomm led the offense, going 3-3. Wright also chipped in with a hit and an RBI. After winning Pool A, Ontario faced host New Brunswick in the semi-final. Campbell Ellis made his second start of the tourney and would cruise through five innings‎. He did not allow a run and gave up just two hits. Dante and Austin both scored twice in the 10-3 win. That set the stage for another Connor O'Halloran start in the gold medal game‎ versus BC. Connor was brilliant‎, not allowing a hit until the top of the fourth. He had struck out six of nine to that point. He exited the game in the fifth with a 9-3 lead. In all Connor fanned seven BC hitters en route to the championship. Ontario scored one in the first then five more in their half of the second. Austin Gomm had a two RBI double during the rally. Ontario made it 9-0 after three with three more runs in the third. That would be all they would need on the offensive side in this game. Austin Gomm hit .409 and was named the tournament Top Hitter. The entire Terriers organization is‎ very proud of these fine young men and wish them continued success in their baseball careers.
