Hanover Park received two two-run home runs from Casolaro and Tyler Scaff. Christadore was 1-3 and was on base for both home runs.

Hanover Park Ladies also won both their contests, with a 6-1 victory over Morristown Beard and an unusual 8-7 win over Parsippany in the battle of undefeated conference teams.

Amy Petrovich hit her second Home Run of the season in the first inning. The game for first place looked like a runaway win for Hanover Park as they had a 7-0 lead entering the top of the 7th, but Parsippany rallied for seven runs against a team that had not allowed more than three runs in any game all season. Hanover Park recovered nicely as Jessica Miller singled home her sister Nicole in the bottom half of the 7th to secure the 8-7 victory. Galioto had four hits and scored three runs.
