Mill River's pitcher, Lincoln Pritchard, gave up eight hits over six-plus innings and struck out one player and walked one. Harwood was unable to come back after Mill River got five runs in the fourth inning.
Harwood opened strong with two runs in the bottom of the first. Two batters after Lucas Russell hit a single up the middle, Dylan MacIsaac hit a triple to right center field that plated Russell for the opening run.
