The Colonials got on the board in the bottom half of the fifth inning when third baseman Geoff Milsom (New York, NY / Notre Dame) singled home catcher Joe Michalski (Ellicott City, MD / Mt. Hebron) to set the score at 4-1.

Milsom went 3-for-5 with an RBI in the game.

The Spiders loaded the bases with one out in the top of the sixth and used a RBI walk from centerfielder Ben Zeskind, a GW fielding error and a fielder's choice to take a six-run advantage.

Zeskind walked three times and scored twice in the contest.

Centerfielder Matt Owens (Fayetteville, GA / Fayette County) brought the Colonials to 7-3 when he followed designated hitter Tom Shanley's (Stanfordville, NY / Pine Plains) two-out double with a home run (6).
