the second consecutive year the underdog 17u Terriers battled their way to the
18u PBLO playoff title . The final score was 5-2 over the 18u Terriers.
After coming out of pool play as the number three seed the Terriers came away with a hard fought 6-5 win over London.
That set up yet another date with the 18u Terriers who had defeated the Ottawa- Nepean Canadians in their semi by a 4-3 score.
RHP Liam Carey got the starting duties and worked three efficient innings. He left the game with a 4-2 lead.
Lefty Luke Earle carried the ball the rest of the way en route to the championship. He struck out four.
With the 18s leading 1-0 Jakob Cellupica picked up a sac fly RBI in the top of the second, then Jacob Mahoney put the 17s ahead 4-1 with a two RBI double that was sliced down the right field line.
A fifth insurance run was scored in the top of the fifth when Conrad Erasmus drilled a single up the middle, advanced on a Connor O'Halloran ground out, then scored on Matt Torresan's RBI single to the gap.
Congratulations to Manager Greg O'Halloran, his staff and his gritty troops on the victory.
