The A pool semi –finals saw the Uhthoff Nationals play the Dodgers. Down 1-0 in the 6th inning Uhthoff was able to force extra innings with an Andrew Balkwill solo homerun and took a 2-1 in the top half of extra innings. The Dodgers answered to tie the game in the bottom half and in the following inning and won on a Jordan Bennett RBI single. Rama Braves battled the Dundalk Smoke in the other semi-final game. Down 3-2 late Dundalk completed a comeback as they tied the game with a close play at home which ended with the benches clearing. Once play continued Dundalk added another run to  win the game and advance to play the Dodgers in the championship game.

The combination of the Dodgers bats and the pitching of Caleb Keeshig was too much for Dundalk to handle in the championship game as the Dodgers cruised to a 9-3 victory to claim top prize.
