Gianfranco Morello led the offence with a 3-4 performance, driving in two.

Game two saw a wild one between the Reds and league rivals, the Leaside Leafs. Thornhill struck early cashing in six times in the first inning, but decided to give four unearned back to compete a ten run first frame. The Leafs would get no closer as Morello once again had his way with senior pitching, posting a 4-5 effort including his sixth home run of the year and five RBI. Jeremiah Groulx also had a big game for Thornhill with the stick, as he collected four hits in six trips to the plate.
