In Friday's 4:45 contest the Auburn Trojans beat Emerald Ridge 10-3, and at 6:00 Curtis beat host team Rogers in the first semi-final game, 11-3.

Friday's second semi-final game between Lakes and Wilson was the closest game of the day, with the score tied four times during the first three quarters of play.
