It was a game that could have gone either way but the Falcons came up with some great defense against one of the league's best defensive teams.
A bad third inning for the Falcons (or a good third inning if you are a Direct fan) saw them put 5 runs on the board and pull ahead 6 – 3. With Falcons missing a couple of big guys this could have been the game but stepping up to take charge were the red hot “The Legend” Jerry Tone and an equally hot Barry as a fill in at first base, combining for a 7 for 8 night at the plate, 5 RBIs, 4 runs scored and a brilliant double play to get Rick T at the plate. With a solid team backing up the dynamic duo the Falcons went on to win this one 11 – 6.
- Homerun by Barry, 3 for 3 and a walk and a 4 RBI night
- Junior, 4 for 4 on the night and 2 RBIs
- Jerry, 3 for 4 on the night, 2 runs scored and a RBI
