Bunn scored 2 runs in the top of the 7th inning to close the gap, but Josh Elias relieving for Colby Warren closed the door to preserve the win.
Post game comments by Coach Mark Snead, "This was a big win for our team. When you beat a quality team like Bunn you always know you played a great game. Our guys played strong defense and had timely hitting. Colby pitched an excellent game. Josh really showed what he was made of coming in with the bases loaded and helping us seal the win. Now we have to turn our focus to Monday's practice to prepare for South Granville."
