In the quarterfinal game, the Pride took a 1-0 lead but Regis Jesuit (Aurora, Colo.) won 8-4 after the Mountain Pointe pitching staff walked seven batters.

Tucker later scored when Regis shortstop Max George dropped a pop up by the Pride's Christian Bitar.

In the second game, Pride left-hander Garvin Alston threw give scoreless innings before Milton High School out of Georgia rallied in the bottom of the sixth to earn a 2-1 victory.
