Kern Valley was able to take the early lead as they scored once in the top of the first. Bishop answered with a pair of runs to make it 2-1 in their favor. The Broncs battled back to tie it at 2-2 by pushing a run home in their half of the second inning. The Broncs also responded with one run to grab the lead back at 3-2. 

The see-saw battle continued as Kern Valley plated two runs to regain the lead. The score was sitting at 4-3 when the Broncos of Bishop came to the plate in the bottom of the third inning. When the dust had settled Bishop was back up on top by three runs.  Four runs crossed the plate for the home squad and the score was 7-4.

Still with plenty of fight in them, Kern Valley got back in the game by scoring three times. The game was knotted at 7-up and it was Bishop turn once again. They had the answer as they scored twice to break the tie and give them the 9-7 cushion. Neither team managed to score in the fourth inning to keep it a two-run deficit for the visiting Broncs.

In the top of the fifth, Kern Valley got one back to make it 9-8, but the rally fell short. Bishop closed out their scoring by adding four runs in the bottom of the fifth to put the score at 13-8. The Broncs had one more chance to rally, but was kept off the scoreboard and the game went final at 13-8.
