At No. 3, J-M saw Harrison Brewer double up Josh Lineberry 10-5 while at No. 5 it was Erik Lujan holding off Harrison Fogleman 10-7.

For Chatham Charter at No. 4 it was Cody Morgan downing David Herrera 10-3 while Lane Crowder whipped George Topete 10-3 at No. 6.

With the match on the line, doubles would decide the outcome, and Chatham Charter struck first in the top-seeded battle when McInturff and Meglar teamed up to down Sifuentes and Lujan 8-4 to send the Knights up 4-3.

At No. 3, Fogleman and Crowder would clinch the Chatham Charter win with an 8-3 triumph over Topete and Jason Santamaria.
