Concordia advanced to play Beloit for the championship by winning the early game over Osborne by a score on 1-0.
Beloit wins the championship game 10-8 over Concordia.
The championship began lop sided as Concordia went out to the huge and stunning early lead 7-0 after just the 1st inning. Beloit had entered the game with a very confident feeling knowing they had not yet lost in the double elimination tournament, and they had Jeremy Eilert one of their aces rested and ready to go to the mound for them. It just didn't prove to beEilert's night as he faltered early and didn't make it out of the first inning. Concordia bats got to Eilert early and often, and a couple of costly errors had Beloit down 7-0 after the 1stinning.

Good baseball game in Lincoln last night in the feature game. In the winner's bracket contest Davis Dubbert pitched for Beloit and Jake Tiernan for Osborne. Both hurlers put on very a very good display of their pitching talents. Dubbert came away with the victory and Beloit captured their 20th win of the season and none bigger as they advance to now be the only unbeaten team in the double elimination tournament. Dubbert remained undefeated on the mound this season with a 7-0 record and a microscopic ERA of .82. The lone run for Osborne on the night was unearned while Dubbert gave up 2 hits, struck out 4 and walked 2.
