Game one is pivotal in a three game series, especially between two of the best teams in the DVC.
Both teams sent their aces to the hill with Ryan Eiermann for Naperville Central and Brandon Petersen for Waubonsie Valley. It was the Redhawks who drew first blood getting RBI singles from Eiermann and Jack Hughes in the first inning.
The Warriors picked up a run in the fourth. Nick Price led off the inning with a double before Jason Neville got a 2 out RBI single to make the score 2-1.
In the fifth, the Redhawks extended the lead when Conor Joyce plated two with an RBI hit.
Central added another pair late to go along with a web gem in center field from Austin Sherman to pick up the 6-1 win to open the series.
