Flores hit a solo home run over the left field fence with two outs in the top of the third inning to help Tenaha gain six runs in the third inning. The Tigers added one in the fourth to extend their lead to 14-1 and enforce the 10-run-rule after the MHS squad failed to score in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The Tigers' Flores and Muckelroy teamed up for five strikeouts each. Martinsvilles' Hooper pitched all five innings and had eight strikeouts.
