The Lions scored two in the first on a two-RBI double from Jesse Rall, scoring Richie Gorski and Evin Natick. Southern picked up two more runs in the third on an RBI single from Axel Johnson scoring Rall and Chris Hoffman

Two more runs came in for the Lions in the fifth when Hoffman scored on an error and Jacob Bryant drove in Jon Davis to put the Lions up 6-0. 

UCO (16-20, 11-15 MIAA) made a game of it, scoring three in the sixth and one in the seventh, but couldn't score any more as Pettus shut the door in the seventh.
