Sabetha batted around in the fifth and scored five runs with a two RBI double by Argabright highlighting the inning to help extend the Sabetha lead to 7-1. In the sixth Sabetha batted around again and used seven walks in the inning along with an RBI single b Kamden Brownlee to tally six runs making it 13-1. Doniphan County needed runs to continue the game in the bottom of the sixth and manage two on three hits but that wasn't enough as Sabetha earned the 13-3 win.
