The visiting North Duplin Rebels rebounded from a game one loss to take a 12–3 win over East Columbus in Thursday’s game two of the 1A East Region best of three series. Game three is scheduled for North Duplin Friday at 6 p.m. due to rain in Saturday's forecast.

The contest was a complete reversal of game one, with North Duplin cutting down on walks and making the routine defensive plays. The Rebels benefited from six Gators errors.
