Burroughs led for most of the first game, but the Lancers (23-8) — runner-up from the Marmonte League — came back to tie the score late at 17. But a kill by Jacobs put the Indians back on top, and they never relinquished the lead.
Thousand Oaks had the lead early in Game 2, 3-1, only to have the Indians snatch it back at 10-9. Although Thousand Oaks was able to tie the score five more times, it couldn't manage to lead again.
It looked as if the Indians were going to roll to a three-game sweep, leading, 20-15, in the third game. But mistakes began to plague Burroughs, allowing the Lancers to go on a 10-3 run to end the stanza with a win.
