The Jags bats got hot and the game was called in the second inning due to mercy rule. The Jags took on the #1 seed Grove Ridegrunners in the semi-finals.

The Jags scored 3 more runs with 2 outs to take a 7-4 lead. Jags scored 5 more runs in the last inning and held on to win 12-5 to advance to the championship game against undefeated Skiatook Giants.
