On Saturday afternoon, in the first game of the doubleheader against Humber, the Hawks scored in the top of the third to go up 1-0. The Falcons answered with a leadoff single by Tyler Wood (Niagara Falls, ON). Back-to-back singles from Carlos Arteaga (London, ON) and Hayden Regnier (Komoka, ON) would score Wood to tie the ball game. Fanshawe would use that momentum and add three more runs on hits by Zach Desa (London, ON) and Jeremy Noonan (London, ON) to go up 4-1 after the third. Humber scored a pair in the top of the fifth to cut the home team's lead but the Falcons would hold on to win the game 4-3. Kale Bilger (London, ON) improved his record to 2-0.


The Falcons started the scoring in game two when they loaded the bases in the third inning on a Cam Cook (Oakville, ON) single and walks by Bilger and Faris Adamou (Mississauga, ON). Arteaga then sent Cook home on an RBI single to go up 1-0 after the third. Bilger hit a single to centrefield to start the bottom of the fifth and would eventually score on an Arteaga sacrifice fly to extend the Fanshawe lead to 2-0. Humber would tie the game at two in the top of the seventh inning. In the bottom of the seventh, Wood hit a single and Adamou was hit by a pitch for the third time in the game to get the Falcons rolling. A Humber passed ball then advanced Fanshawe's runners, forcing the Hawks to intentionally walk Arteaga to load the bases with none out. Noonan drew a walk to finish off the ball game and get the 3-2 win for the Falcons. The winning pitcher for Fanshawe was Ilderton native Noah Smith (1-0). Noonan was the Falcons top performer, going 4 for 6 with a pair of RBIs and a walk.


On Sunday against Durham, the Falcons struggled to score and fell to the Lords 3-0 in game one. Fanshawe's Wood had five strikeouts, however took his first loss of the season, bringing his record to 1-1.


In game two, Durham went up 2-0 after the second inning. In the bottom of the third, Arteaga hit a triple to left field and would score on a Travis Helps (Mooretown, ON) single.  A sacrifice fly by Cook scored Noonan to tie the ball game at two. Unfortunately, the Lords would add three runs in the top of the fourth to take the 5-2 lead and hold on for the win. The losing pitcher for Fanshawe was Oakville native, Tyler Rymal (1-1)
