Game 1 - Makos 7 – Sand Sharks 3
The Sand Sharks got out to an early lead, in part, due to a Cameron Shaw (Brandeis) solo home run. However, the Makos scored multiple runs in three consecutive innings and came away with the win. Alex Perry (Sacred Heart) hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning that sealed the victory. Seven different Makos scored and all but one had at least one hit. Vinny Prisco (Marywood) had three hits, and David Hawley (Nassau) and Justin Ganca (Hartford) each had two.
