After a scoreless first inning, St. Henry scored twice in the second inning, twice more in the third, then tallied two more runs in the fourth.

Crestview had two runners on in the opening inning. With two outs, Brett Schumm reached first on a error, then Dylan Hicks walked. The next batter was retired to end the threat.
