Wall jumped on top in the top of the second inning on a solo home run to left by senior Jerry Winchester. The Crimson Knights threatened again in the third when senior Nick Colbert walked and moved to second on a sacrifice, followed by a hard groundball by senior Nick Lovarco that was misplayed at third base and scooted into the outfield.
Colbert attempted to score, but Red Bank Catholic executed a successful relay from Meyers in left, Griggs at third and junior Shane Andrus at the plate to cut down Colbert for the second out.
Following in the play at the plate, Stanyek retired 13 of the next 15 batters that he faced, with the two exceptions coming on a pair of walks.
