LAST TIME OUT VS FANSHAWE

The two met to open the season in London at Labatt Park, and it was the Hawks who swept away the Falcons in the first "Battle of the Birds". Game two of the doubleheader was the game of significance here, and it was Humber who dominated in every aspect of the game, coming away with 13-0 (mercy after 6 innings) result. Humber outhit Fanshawe 14 to 2 on the day, but of significance was the four errors the home team committed. The big blow was a grand slam by Hawks freshman Aidan Murphy. Another freshman, Braden Taylor, went the distance for the victory.
