In game one, the Mount knotted things up at 1-1 in the top of the third as Patrick Gully scored after a LaRoche error. The Mounties had runners on second and third and one away after Gully scored, but failed to take the lead after back-to-back strikeouts.
LaRoche then took the lead with two runs in their next at-bat, and opened up the game with a three-run sixth inning to take the 7-1 lead. In their last at-bat, the Mounties threatened with runners on second and third with no outs but couldn't convert.
Gully went 3-for-3 and accounted for three of the Mount's five hits. Paul Rogerson took the loss on the mound, allowing seven earned runs over six innings.
