In Game Two, the Comets sent Junior RJ Bohnet to the mound.

After the leadoff hitter reach on an error, Bohnet retired the next three hitters quickly. In the bottom-half of the first, the Comets looked to pushed runs across early. Stoakes led the inning off with a triple and then West walked. Hylek then flied out to center, scoring Stoakes. After a single by Logan Todd, Gardella laced a single to center, scoring West and giving the Comets and early 2-0 lead.

Bohnet was efficient in the second, setting down the side on seven pitches, but the Comets also were set down quickly, despite a single by Stoakes.

In the third, Bohnet was once again getting outs quickly, pitching around an error and tossing another scoreless inning. In the home half of the third, the Comets were retired in order. Still 2-0 Comets headed to the fourth.

After the first batter was retired, the Cougars finally got to Bohnet, piecing together 4 straight hits and tying the ballgame, 2-2.

Sophomore Kaden Nowak led the fourth off with a double and reached third base on a flyout but was unable to score.

Bohnet would find his rhythm once again, getting two groundouts and a flyout to keep the game tied. The Comet offense remained in a slump as they are set down in order once again.

Meister come on in the sixth and got two strikeouts and a groundout to hold the Cougars down. Unfortunately, the Comets were also quiet, going down quickly.

Both teams failed to score in the seventh, and we head to extra innings under the lights!

The Cougars leadoff man reach on a single and a sacrifice bunt moved the runner to second base. With one-out, Meister got a groundball but the ball was misplayed, trickling into centerfield allowing the go-ahead run to score.

Down one, the Comets head to the plate with the middle of their order due up, but there are set down in order, giving the Cougars the 3-2 victory.
