The Eagles of Montgomery County took the early lead, but Treutlen came back to make it a game late. MCHS scored three runs in the bottom of the first inning, and added four more in the second to hold a 7-1 lead over the Vikings, who picked up their run in the top of the second.

They added another in the fourth to make it 7-5, but MCHS answered with a run in the bottom of the fourth for an 8-5 lead.
