17s Win Two Straight in Florida
The 17u Terriers won back to back games these past couple of days at Baseball City in St. Petersburg Florida.

After a 17-4 victory over Kishwaukee JC on Monday the Terriers took down Gatineau (PQ) by an 11-5 score on Tuesday.

Connor O'Halloran fired the first four innings versus Gatineau, striking out eight. He dominated hitter after hitter with a precise blend of all three of his pitches.

 

The Terriers struck for a run in their half of the first after Conrad Erasmus singled, advanced on two pass balls then scored on Jacob Mahoney's RBI single up the middle. 

 

With one out in the third Tyler Offman blasted a ‎double over the left fielder's head then scurried home on Logan Pelletier's RBI single. 2-0 Terriers. 

 

Two more Terrier's crossed in the bottom of the fourth on back to back booming doubles by Justice Lawton and Matt Torresan. Tyson Gomm followed the pair of doubles with a triple that knocked the Gatineau starter out of the game. That made the score 4-0 and the 17s would not look back en route to the 11-5 decision.

 

AJ Karosas, Jakob Cellupica and Ben Baker‎ all chipped in with a hit and a run scored.

 

In Monday's win AJ Karosas and Jakob Cellupica led the offense with three hits, while Tyler Offman, Tyson Gomm, Jacob Mahoney and Liam Carey had two each. 

Jacob and AJ had three RBI.

 

Luke Earle, Logan Pelletier and Aidan Pickering combined on the mound in the victory. Logan had five strike outs. 

 

‎Spring Training ends on Wednesday. The teams will fly home Thursday morning.
