Wilson played the final 33:10 in a 6-1 win over Southwest and had one save. In the 1-0, double overtime win at Pearl River, Wilson played the entire 105 minutes and had six saves.

Harley went the distance and had three saves in the Bobcats' 3-0 shutout over Southwest. In Jones' 2-1 win at Pearl River, Harley recorded six saves in the final 10:11 of play in relief of Peyton Wilbanks.
