Tyler Francis went the first five innings, Zach Van Thomme went 3 innings on the mound for Faribault,  Nick Rost struck out the side to end the game in the 9th inning.

In the second inning Jack Jandro stroked a one out single.  Adam Kline hit the ball resulting in an error.  Langerud sent Jandro home with a single and Faribault was up 3-0.

Nate Rost also knocked in Langerud in the fifth inning.
