FGCU responded though, taking game two Saturday night, courtesy of a huge 9th inning behind a home run from Alexander Figueredo, and doubles from Johnny Long, and Brian Ellis.

Game 3 was a shootout between both teams, with the Dolphins scoring 7 runs in the bottom of the 9th, tying the game up at 10.
