Brunty struck out seven, while Reese Long sat down six. One bright spot for Southmont was a single by Tyeson Bushong in the first inning. Brunty was the winning pitcher for Stars. He lasted seven innings, allowing eight hits and zero runs while striking out seven. Long took the loss for Southmont. He surrendered one run on six hits over six innings, striking out six and walking one. Josh Benson led the Stars with two hits on three at bats and the game deciding RBI.
