Weekend Recap vs UFV

The OC Coyotes played host to the University of Fraser Valley Cascades on Friday, their first meeting of the season. Both teams had been playing well coming into the double header, OC on a 4 game win streak and UFV winning 3 of their last 4.

OC would continue swing their hot bats as they would take both games by scores of 12-7 and 14-3.

In game one, starting pitcher Chris Wyslobocki (Fresh, Toronto, ON) would have his shortest outing of the season going just 5 innings. He would allow 5 earned runs, 7 hits, walk 5 and strikeout 8. The teams would exchange the lead a couple times before his departure from the game, which would be 6-5. Zac Yandeau (Senior, Plumas, MB) would take over in relief and throw 4 innings, allowing just one earned run on 3 hits, walking 2 and striking out 5. In the 7th inning down 7-5, the OC offense would flex its muscle scoring 7 times. Yandeau would shut down the UFV offense the rest of the game. Offensively, utility man Noah Wood-Jolivet (Sophomore, Mississauga, ON) would continue his hot bat going 3 for 4. Short Stop Jared Dulaba (Senior, Port Coquitlam, BC) would hit his first homerun of the season and would be 2 for 3 with 3 RBI. First baseman Jared Frew (Senior, Calgary, AB) would add 3 RBI.

The Coyotes were scheduled to travel to Chilliwack on Saturday, but the games were cancelled due to weather and poor field conditions. The games are yet to be rescheduled.

Next up for the Coyotes will be games against the University of Calgary Dinos starting on Sunday April 22 at 4 & 7, and again on Monday April 23 at 11 & 2. These games were originally going to be played in Calgary, but due to Calgary still having snow, the games have been moved to Kelowna.

Weekend Series Recap vs TRU

After a tough series in Nanaimo, the Coyotes were looking to have a solid weekend against their long time rivals, the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack, and they did so by taking all 3 games outscoring TRU 27-7 and out hitting them 34-18, including hitting 6 homeruns. The 2nd game of the series was rescheduled due to weather and field conditions.

The series began on Thursday in Kamloops and the Coyotes came out swinging. They would put up 17 hits including big games from Center Fielder Davis Todosichuk (Senior, Kelowna, BC) who went 3 for 5 with 3 doubles and 2 RBI, First Baseman Jared Frew (Senior, Calgary, AB) went 2 for 4 with a homerun and 3 RBI, Third Baseman Brandon Graham (Senior, Prince George, BC) went 2 for 3 with a homerun, Designated Hitter Dylan Faulkner (Fresh, Kelowna, BC) went 2 for 3 including his first college homerun and Outfielder Trevor Mlait (Fresh, West Kelowna, BC) went 3 for 5 with 2 RBI.

Game two on Thursday would have to be rescheduled as constant rain would make the field unplayable. The game is rescheduled on a later date.

Starting pitcher Aiden Mordecai (Soph, Cloverdale, BC) would throw 6 innings, allowing 5 hits, walking 5 and striking out3. Mordecai would struggle with his command but continually made the right pitches to escape innings. Zac Yandeau (Senior, Plumas, MB) would throw two innings in relief and Trevor Brigden (Senior, Toronto, BC) would close the door for the Coyotes. Offensively, Davis Todosichuk would lead off the game with his first homerun of the season and Jared Frew would hit his 3rd homerun of the season in the 4th.
