17U Terriers Win PBLO Playoffs
For 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.
