Down 3-0 Appoquinimink put a run on the board  in the bottom of the second inning on a fielder’s choice. St Georges answered right back as Brooks collected another RBI on a single in the top of the third. 

Owen Parrish started the bottom of the third inning off with a single, followed by a walk to Hunter Hitches. With runners on first and second Evan Bouldin hit a line drive double to right field scoring both Parrish and Hitchens. Chase Fleming followed Bouldin with a walk putting runners on first and second for the second time in the inning. 

After a wild pitch to Travis Peden, Bouldin moved up to third and scored on an error in the same play with Fleming following as he reached third base on the play as well. On a 1-1 pitch Peden drove a line drive to center field that resulted in a triple scoring Fleming. Peden then scored on an error to cap off the five run inning. Both teams scored one run each in the fourth inning as the Jaguars walked away with a 7-5 comeback win.
