Down 2-1 after two innings, Neligh went on a 9-0 run, including a huge five-run fourth inning to take home the win.
Neligh pulled ahead 3-2 in the third inning after Hunter Charf hit an RBI double to center field, scoring Kaleb Pofahl. Charf also crossed the plate when Andrew Herley hit a double to center.
With the momentum shifting to Neligh, the Seniors exploded in the fourth inning. Connor Ramold kicked off the scoring run as five straight batters crossed the plate. Ramold walked to first, then Beau Murray singled to center and Austin Miller singled to left field to score Ramold.
