In the first game, they defeated Plano John Paul II 3-2 in eight innings.

In their second game, they had a 2-0 lead on the host Lions in the fourth inning, but the Husky starting pitcher had to leave due to arm soreness, and the bullpen couldn't hold the lead, resulting in a 12-2 loss in 6 innings.
