Capital 3, Peninsula 2: The Cougars gave up a couple of runs early in the game to the Seahawks, but fought their way back and won in the last innings.

Casperson would strike again for the Cougars as he tied the game in the seventh on a ground ball to second base that would score Silas Jensen. Kyle Johnson doubled to center field on the next play and score Chase Clveringa for the go-ahead run.

The Seahawks got their two runs in the top of the first when Cooper Sims and Andrew Vogel both drove in runs.
