The Crimson Pride fell behind 3-0 but battled back to eventually tie the game in the bottom of the 5th on an RBI single by Noah Rheinheimer. 

After the Titans retook the lead, 4-3, in the top of the 7th, Roncalli rallied for the championship as Logan McGill hit the game-winner to left that scored two including Thomas Alitz. 

"Just teamwork, all around," said McGill. "We all count on each other to get the job done. I was that guy today. It's amazing. We haven't done this in a while. It feels so great."

"It feels amazing," said senior pitcher Creighton Silvain. "I'm just glad we were a part of it and I mean look at this stadium. It looks amazing so I'm just proud that we did it and hope it just keeps going from here."
