The first run of the game was not scored until the fourth inning as Rock Island got on the board. Back-to-back singles from Kelley and Michaels started the inning. Kelley would later score to make the score 1-0.

In the sixth inning, Rock Island added another run. Stegall gave the Rocks a two run lead with a home run to left.

Plainfield North was down to their final at bats. The seventh inning started for the Tigers with a home run from Callow. The Tigers would threaten with the bases loaded, but Rock Island was able to get out of the jam to end the inning and take a 2-1 victory and become the 4A state champion.

Congrats to both team on a terrific season and a great game.
