The Eagles tied the game in the fourth inning with two more runs to make it 7-7, but one run from Atkinson put them back on top, 8-7 in the fifth. They added two more runs in the sixth inning on the way to a 10-7 win over the Eagles.

MCHS was led by Jay Harris, Joseph Owens, and Jayden Williams, each with two hits one the day. Williams also drove in two runs in the game.
