In game one, Richville used a strong pitching performance from Carter Mulcahy to defeat Perham-Dent 4-2. Mulcahy also did damage at the plate going 3-3.

Maddux Kovash was 2-2 and Matt Osborn of Pelican Rapids added a big two-run home run. Jack Fudge added a web gem play at third base for the Rockets while Dalton Honer and Dawson Kellogg each had two hits for Perham-Dent.

In game two, Noah Rooney shut the door on Sebeka-Henning firing a two-hit shutout striking out 11. Rooney again helped himself at the plate going 3-3 while Kovash added an additional 3-3 performance. This close contest ended with a 3-0 Rocket victory.

The Championship game pitted Richville against Wadena Blue/Gold. After three scoreless innings, Wadena tagged Richville for a five-run fourth inning. Richville fought back with three in the top of the fifth but Wadena answered with two more of their own in the bottom frame. The Rockets needed a couple great plays in the field by Aaron Lorentz to keep the game close. Down 7-3 and needing four runs to keep the game alive in the top of the sixth, Osborn led off with a walk followed by a Ryan Murphy base hit. Murphy would go 3-3 in his final Rocket game. After an out, Rooney laced a double scoring Osborn. After the second out, Richville was down to its final out trailing by three. A Kovash base-hit plated Murphy and Devin Meyer came up big with a single to tie the game and plate two. Osborn shut down Wadena in the bottom of sixth and the teams played a scoreless seventh before the Rockets’ big eighth inning.

Rooney led off with a single and after an out, Kovash had his fifth hit of the game. Meyer was plunked to load the bases when Rowdie Lindquist had the game-winning single to plate two Rocket runners. DJ Lysne added another RBI and the Rockets held on to the three-run lead with a nice play by Owen Werner to win a great game 10-7.

For the tournament, Mulcahy, Rooney and Osborn earned victories on the mound, while Kovash was 10-10 at the plate. Mulcahy and Rooney each had five hits.
