The Niagara Snappers took on the Orillia Riversharks in ISC Travel League play and came away on the short end of the stick in both games of a doubleheader. Orillia, one of the best senior men’s teams with players from all over the world making up their roster, came away with 10-3 and 6-2 victories.

Game #1 saw Mike Bateman take the mound for the Snappers. A shaky first inning resulted in 6 runs which is all Orillia would need en route to the win. After the first inning, Bateman settled down an only allowed 2 runs to Orillia over the next 4 innings of work. At the plate, Trevor Falk who missed half of the 2005 season, is beginning to show signs of regaining the stroke at the plate that has made him one of the most feared ISC II hitters. Falk accounted for all Niagara runs going 2-2 with a home-run and a double. Kevin Newhouse and Jamie Morey also picked up hits for the Snappers.

Game #2 starter Dan Duemo held Orillia to 1 run over 3 innings before the Riversharks exploded for 4 home-runs in the next 2 innings and pulled away from Niagara winning 6-2. Duemo allowed 5 earned runs over 7 innings of work. Again, Trevor Falk homered as did right fielder Todd Dawdy but it wasn’t enough as Orillia starter and Team Canada member Frank Cox was dominating on the mound in throwing 7 innings and striking out 12 along the way.
