A walkoff single in the bottom of the seventh inning by winning pitcher Charlie Sullivan was the difference for the Exelon team, which won the first-ever KAU 50/70 Intermediate Championship, 8-7, over the Italian American Citizens' League team.

Starting pitchers Exelon's Ethan Sarosi and IACL's Chris Kratz battled for four innings before IACL took a 5-4 lead. IACL scored in the top of the fifth and sixth innings  to increase their lead to 7-4. In the sixth, Exelon tied the game at 7-7, getting key hits from Kevin Wessels, Austin Ahart, Josh Ploener, and Corbin Barnett.

Great defensive plays by Exelon's Kevin Wessels and Matt Hauptschein highlighted a three-up, three-down inning by Exelon going into their last at-bat. Tait Mott led off the bottom of the seventh, stole second base, and scored the winning run on Sullivan's single between the shortstop and third baseman.
