In the top of the fourth the heart of the Terriers order was at it again, this time mounting a three run rally to take a 5-1 lead. Robert Wilson (Jr-Mississauga) lead off with a single and scored when Luke Tevlin counted another hit to the gap in right center. Kyle MacDonald followed with a double to the fence in right, scoring Tevlin. MacDonald then crossed on an RBI double down the third base line by Andrew Dickerson (Jr-Port Hope).
After the Terriers scored their sixth run in the top of the fifth Wisconsin mounted a three run rally in the bottom half of the inning to make the score 6-4.
The Terriers added an insurance run in the top of the seventh on back to back to back hits by Kojima, Tevlin and MacDonald.
The pitchers went by committee in this one. Sam Turcotte (So-Toronto) threw innings one and two, Robert Wilson tossed the middle three and Jacob Kreiger (Sr-Mississauga) rounded things out with the final six outs.
