Game 1: Walsh 4 – KWC 2: The Cavaliers took a 1-0 lead in the first inning, putting together three hits to plate one run. That lead was extended to two in the fifth after a two-out solo home run.
Brayden Sisson led off the bottom of the sixth with a home run of his own to put the Panthers on the board. Sisson's second home run of the season cut the deficit to one.
Walsh responded with a pair of runs in the top of the eighth to take a 4-2 lead. The Panthers had the game-tying run at the plate in both the eighth and ninth inning but were unable to execute.
Ellis finished game one two-for-four at the plate while Sisson, Curry and Ethan Maxey each recorded one hit.
Game 2: Walsh 19 – KWC 0 (7 innings): Walsh belted 23 hits in game two, scoring at least two runs in five separate innings. The Cavaliers recorded three home runs, the most the Panthers have given up in a single game this season.
