The game was tied 3-3 in the fifth before Trent Elstad came up with a two-run single. The Tigers (25-6) pulled within a run in the bottom of the sixth when Nate Rose singled to right to drive in a run, but they would get no closer.

Rose finished 2 for 4.

Bonneville went hitless in a 4-0 loss to Ridgevue in the 4A consolation game.

Easton Amundson and Caden Steinman combined to stymie the Bees offense, which was held to one walk in the game.
