Sophomore Cory Thompson was called upon again by the Mauldin staff to start on the mound. He pitched another complete game allowing 2 hits, , 3 walks and striking out 7 batters.

Offensively, the charge was also led by Cory Thompson going 3 for 3 (1 single, 1 double, 3 RBIs and 2 long balls but one was waived a foul by the home plate official). Senior Steve Byerley came in the game in the fifth and went 2 for 2 (2 single) and Senior Jeremiah McKie  had 2 singles with 2 RBIs. Eighth Grader LT Tolbert batted over 500 with 2 doubles and 1 RBI.
