An error by Macey McKee at shortstop allowed Keota to take a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, but Quinton quickly answered. Macey led off the bottom of the first with a walk, then scored on a triple by Crawford to tie the game.
Bruner’s single drove in Crawford, then Shelby Brennan and Jaycee McKee hit back-to-back RBI singles. Thomas then hit into a fielder’s choice at second that still scored Shelby for a 5-1 lead.
