Steve Hynes chucked a seven-inning, one-hitter in the championship-clinching 5-1 win, never surrendering a single walk, while the defence behind him was solid as he only had to throw one strikeout.

Braden Lockyer was tagged with the loss on the mound for the Monarchs, giving up five runs (three earned) on three hits through four innings. He walked five and struck out four. Kevin Farrell pitched two innings, posting zeroes across the board.

Ryan Park was 1-for-3 with a run and an RBI in the win, while Greg Whalen scored twice in a 1-for-3 outing of his own.

Anderson Traverse scored the only Monarchs run while going 1-for-2, stealing third and home to get his side on the board.
