Game 1 - Atlantics 4 - Cardinals 3
This game was a tight one right to the end. Strong performances from both squads gave their clubs the chance to pull out the victory, however the offensive consistency of Brandon Fischer (Briarcliffe) who went 3-for-5 with a triple and two RBIs, including a walk off single in the eighth, proved to be too much for the Cardinals. Dominick Raucci (Dowling) also went 2-for-3 with an extra base hit. Jesse Russo (Hofstra) and Joey Fusco (Hofstra) also combined for five hits, two runs and two stolen bases.

Winning Pitcher - Atlantics - Brandon Lubrano (2-0)
