Both teams battled back and forth but the Homewood 8th Grade All Stars ultimately pulled out the first game of the weekend series, 7-6 over the Flossmoor 8th Grade All Stars.

Down 6-5 in the top of the seventh, Flossmoor tied it on a pass ball that scored Alan Williams. In the bottom half of the inning, Homewood had the bases loaded thanks to two walks and one hit batsmen. With one out, Cory Bevil hit a groundball that ultimately allowed Thompson to score from the third and gave his team the victory.
