In a game played Monday evening, the Hartselle National team scored five runs in the top of the sixth inning to take a two-run lead, only to see Athens National score three runs in the bottom of the sixth to take the victory.

In the bottom of the sixth, Athens National loaded the bases with nobody out but Hartselle National managed to make two outs with the score still 9-9. William O'Rear hit a sharp groundball toward shortstop to score Jacob Shackleford with the winning run.
