As inning three commenced, the Dukes struggled to stop the offensive aggression from Norton. Morgan Custar stopped Norton by catching a fly ball in left field making the third out. The Dukes were now in a deeper pit with the score being 8 to 1.


The score stayed constant for the next 4 innings with Marlington racing to catch up with Norton. Chunko made a double play giving the Dukes their opening to come back. While the Dukes came close they did not score for the rest of the game.
