Down 11-2 starting the final inning, the Bluejays rallied for six runs in the final inning. They had the go ahead run at the plate, but fell just short. The Bluejays had not allowed a run prior to the semifinals in defeating the host team Garden City, Grand Forks, North Dakota, and Scottsbluff, Nebraska.
