The Indians were able to hold the No. 1-ranked team scoreless until the fourth inning when the Mustangs hit a two-run homer.

Friendswood tacked on two more runs in the fifth.

PNG catcher Ryan Sosa hit in Blake Bost in the sixth to bring the score to 4-1. Dean Guidry hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh to bring a runner home, but that was as far as the PNG rally would get.
