- Northwood 13 – Laurens 3 (5)… In the first game yesterday, the two unbeaten teams in the tournament met when Laurens took on Northwood… Northwood has a tradition of fielding strong teams out of their Little League program and that was true last night as Northwood took a 13-3 win in 5 innings… Northwood’s Caden Grice picked up the complete game win limiting Laurens to just 5 hits while striking out 5 and walking 1…. Northwood led 4-3 at the end of 2 innings and then continued to build on their lead until they scored 6 in the sixth inning to end the game on the 10-run rule…. Nic Robertson was the only Laurens player to get more than 1 hit as he went 2-3 with a double while Peyton Nelson went 1-1 with a double and 2 RBIs….

- Laurens 22 – Easley 6….
