After Butts doubled home a run in the third, Catawba was down 4-2. The Sharks answered with three in their third and two more in the fourth to go up 9-2. Shepherd’s home run in the fifth trimmed the deficit to 9-4, but Nova Southeastern scored a run in the fifth then broke the game open with a seven-run sixth. The Sharks added eight more runs in the eighth.
