Dwayne McKenzie tied the match with an rbi double which was followed by a 3

Cox gave up 3 hits and struck out 9 to win the opener.

Orillia 2-0 lead.

Oshweken got on the board in the top of the 4th when pitcher Rory Miller
drilled an r.b.i. double to score Calvin Miller.

However, the Sharks added one in the bottom of the inning when shortstop
Steph Walma knocked in McKenzie.

Then in the 6th, the Riversharks had another 5 run inning to end it,
highlighted by two run homers from both Mullaly and Jackson.

Jackson got the win in the circle for the Riversharks and was impressive
striking out 15.

Rory Miller took the loss for the Redmen.
