In game two the Knights would give up a run in the top of the first before getting the run back in the bottom of the inning when Carson Rich hit a shot that was mis-judged by the right fielder with Rich racing to third and scoring on a bad throw.

While Southwood pitcher Logan Barley would limit North White to just 3 hits, the Knights were also being kept off balance with just 5 hits. The two hits that made the loudest noise came in the bottom of the seventh when Mason Yentes hit a two out double before a Rich walk. Barley would then hit a line drive to right center with Yentes racing home for the 2-1 walk off win.
