The top two teams advance to the championship game.

Ties are broken based on records in head-to-head competition among tied teams. If a clear winner cannot be determined from head-to-head results, the tie is broken by calculating the ratio of runs allowed to defensive innings played for all teams involved in the tie. The team with the lowest runs-per-defensive-inning ratio advances.

In the event of a tie involving three or more teams, once the initial tie is broken, the remaining tied teams are again compared on head-to-head record to determine if a clear winner can be identified. If no clear winner can be identified from head-to-head results among the remaining tied teams, the runs-per-defensive-inning ratio is again used. This process is repeated until all ties have been broken.

Iowa State Championship Game (Thursday, July 26)

Urbandale 6, Boone National 1 (TITLE)


Summary:

Colby Bragdon struck out thirteen batters and hit the first of his team's three home runs as Urbandale Little League defeated homestanding Boone National Little League, 6-1, in the Iowa state championship game.

The win gave Urbandale its first-ever state championship in the major baseball division. Urbandale, which had been the Hawkeye state's runner-up five times, including twice in the prior three years, advanced to the Midwest Region tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Bragdon's solo home run in the bottom of the first inning opened the scoring, then Urbandale sealed the win with a five run outburst in the third. Cody Haneca broke the game open with a three-run home run, and Logan Augustine immediately followed with a solo shot.

Kendall Hilsabeck singled and eventually scored Boone National's only run in the fourth inning.

Bradgon, who allowed only four hits in the title game, was also Urbandale's winning pitcher on the tournament's opening day, when the District 3 champions blanked Davenport Southeast Little League, 4-0. He carried a shutout for five innings before Augustine closed out the win with a scoreless sixth. Parker Magneson had a pair of hits and scored twice to key the Urbandale offense.

Augustine returned to the mound the next day, when Urbandale held off a late charge and defeated Boone National in the teams' first meeting, 11-8. After a loss to Walnut Creek Red Little League -- Urbandale's first loss in ten international tournament games -- the eventual champions clinched a title game berth with wins in its final two round robin games. Chris Downing and Cody Hanniken hit back-to-back home runs twice in a 11-1 win over Ottumwa American Little League, and Urbandale used six run rallies in the first and fourth innings to top Morningslde National Little League, 14-3, in its final pool game.

Boone National, which opened the tournament with a 6-4 win over Morningside National before the loss to Urbandale, won its final three round robin games to claim the second championship game berth. The tournament host edged Ottumwa American, 5-4, then struck late to stun Davenport Southeast, 11-10, in a key matchup of once-beaten teams. Boone National trailed Davenport 10-5 after three innings, and still trailed by two runs with two outs in the sixth inning before rallying for the win. The next day, with the fate of three teams hanging in the balance, Boone National secured its spot in the title game with a 4-0 victory over Walnut Creek Red. The win lifted Boone National into the state championship game for the first time since 2003, and for the fifth time in the league's history.

Urbandale won three of its four pool games at the Midwest Region tournament, and reached the semifinal round before falling, 16-15 in seven innings, to Harney Little League (Rapid City, South Dakota).
