Austin Alphin, Hoover, Christian Hall, Chris Fowler and Malik Foster all reached base and scored to give the Chargers a 6-3 lead.

Amelia continued to put together a strong offensive game as well and scored two more runs in the third inning, but the Chargers answered that with five more runs in the third, as Hoover, Hall, Fowler, Noah Dunbar and Nate Nowlin all had hits during the rally.

Central added two more runs in the fourth as Alphin and Hoover scored and one in the fifth when LJ Watson scored to give them 13 runs on the evening.

Amelia mounted a rally in the fifth inning, but Christian Hall came in to help get the final five outs of the game and pick up a save.
