Jeff Watson had six RBI's on the afternoon and Chance Haugen followed closely with five runs batted in of his own.

Chance Haugen threw the last inning giving up no runs on one hit. "We really played well this week- end. We still have things to improve on but we appear to be going in the right direction. The way we hit the ball takes a lot of pressure off the pitchers," stated manager Ron Thomas.
