In the third inning, Kaden Bevegni's bases-loaded walk gave South a 1-0 lead and Isaac Johnson's two-run single made it 3-0.
The next inning the Wolverines pushed their lead to 5-0 on Neuberger's two-run single.
Chugiak struck for its lone run in the fourth inning after Hunter Rau reached and came home on Michael Boudreau's two-out RBI triple down the right-field line.
In the fifth, Ivanoff tripled and scored and Sugita added a two-run single that opened the flood gates.
