Ridge View scored a run in the 4th to tie it, and a two-out bases loaded two-RBI single by Myrtue in the 5th gave Ridge View a 7-5 lead. An RBI single in the 6th by Trevor Tauber got the Mustangs within a run, but Worthan hit a a two-run no-doubt homer to left in the bottom half. Newell Fonda scored a run in the 7th and had the tying run at the plate when a strikeout ended the game.
