In the first game, Williams went 2-for-3 at the plate, while Jade Sikes struck out two batters and gave up four hits with three runs in four innings pitched. Taylor Gover struck out one batter and gave up one hit in one and 2/3 innings on the mound. Bailey Shannon gave up three hits and two runs in 1/3 of an inning.

Things didn’t go much better in the second game as ESCC went just 5-for-20 at the plate as a team with Vogler, Gover, Danford, Zach Hansen and Connor Varnum each earning one hit. Danford scored ESCC’s lone run.

ESCC used six pitchers in the loss with New Brockton native Ethan Stinson giving up two hits and three runs in 1/3 of an inning. Noah Farmer and Trentin Barbee both pitched one inning each. Famer struck out one batter and gave up one hit, while Barbee gave up one hit and one run.
