The Warriors scored the first two runs of the game in the top of the fourth inning. Ryan Kahl tripled to left field and allowed Carlos Pino to reach home base.

The Warriors added two runs each in the top of the sixth and the seventh to jump to a 9-3 lead, before Caldwell would score their fourth run of the day in the bottom of the seventh. 

Game Two

But Nyack would answer with one-run innings in the fourth, fifth, and sixth inning. Carlos Pino scored after a Kahl groundout in the top of the fourth, before Dillon Good scored after a Kelly single. Kahl would conclude the Warrior scoring of the day, when he scored another run in the top of the sixth after a throwing error by Caldwell's second base man.
