It was a tough game for the Blazers, who started out strong but slowed throughout the game and never quite recovered.

Going from a six run shortage to a three run lead, the Blazers eventually overtook the Clarksburg Coyotes. They closed out the game, their lead slightly lessened,by the score of 11-10 Blair.
