The Lions brought their offense in the series tallying 36 hits in the two games. Bluefield State's defense was not providing much help as the team committed 4 errors in game 1 and 3 errors in game 2. In game 1 Mars Hill went deep twice including a grand slam in the Top of the 7th. In game 2 the Lions were able to go yard two more times, both against Cole Blocker who started game 2.
