Sauder Sports came into this first championship game wanting to make a clear statement to their opponent and did just that by defeating Drake Homes 12-1 to force the need to have the 'if necessary game' played in order to determine which of these two teams would be the champion on this day.
In that extra game both teams laid it on the line as they went at each other with everything that had left on this long and hot day of tournament softball and when the last out had been record into the scorebook the scoreboard read Sauder Sports 17 and Drake Homes 14 giving this tournament title to Sauder Sports.

That team turned out to be Sauder Sports and in the rematch of the championship game Sauder Sport hit rake Homes with an old fashion haymaker defeating them 12-1 to force the need to play the 'if necessary game' between these two teams in order to determine which of them would be the tournament champion. The extra game was everything that a tournament championship game should be.
