C.B. Aycock posted a three-run rally in the top of the ninth to secure the win.

"I thought the game was an exceptionally played by both teams," Aycock coach David West Said. "I thought West Johnston had the upper hand all game. Then we never quit, even in the seventh inning.

Jackson added two hits, including a double, while Kandace Burroughs added two hits in the win.
