Fergus struggled from the mound using five different pitchers in the five inning contest.

The Otters were able to rebound in game two as they rallied from three runs down to top Tech 8-4.

“It’s good to see the boys comeback after getting beatup in the first game,” Otter coach Mark Aho said. “It shows a lot of character.
