Lennox scored the winning run after two outs, a base on balls to pitcher Clayton Wulf, followed by an RBI single for Paul Ellefson.

Line score: Lennox � 7 runs, 6 hits, 4 error; Vermillion � 6 runs, 6 hits, 1 error.

BJ Campbell scored twice from his leadoff spot. Kevin Bleil went 2-4 with a run and an RBI; Drew Lawrence and Alan Bos each were 1-3, scoring 1; Kyle Mollet scored a run on 1-4 batting; and Andy Ofstehage had an RBI on a sac fly.
