No. 3 Brother Rice 12, Grosse Pointe North 2
Brother Rice HS proved why they are one of the most talented teams in the state.  Matt Ruppenthal, who is a Vanderbilt commit and currently ranked No. 1 in the Class of 2014, impressed not only on the mound but at the plate as well.  Brother Rice had 27 hits on the day, including home runs from Ruppenthal, Ty Kiafoulis and Nick Plummer on the day..

Ruppenthal and Tommy Lentz combined to throw a no hitter in Game 1.  Ruppenthal went four innings, struck out five and walked two.  Lentz then followed up Ruppenthal with a clean inning of work as well striking out one.  Game 2 was uneventful as well for the Warriors.  Randy Righter picked up the win tossing four innings.
