Hazard-Perry advanced to the championship round, but would have to defeat Paintsville twice to capture the title. The first game would be a roller coaster ride that would end with an 11 inning marathon.

Hazard-Perry would take the first lead (4-1) after an exchange in the third inning. Paintsville would then start working their way back, scoring single runs in the fifth and sixth innings (4-3).

Paintsville would get the upper hand in a 2-1 trade in the seventh inning (5-5), forcing extra innings. Neither team would score in the eighth and ninth innings, but both would score a single run in the tenth (6-6).

Hazard-Perry would break the stalemate in the 11th inning, keeping their hopes of a state title alive with the 7-6 win.

Hazard-Perry (7) Bailey Blair 2 hits and 1 run; Andy Baker 3 hits and 2 runs; Dylan Fields 1 hit and 1 run; Cameron Turner 2 hits and 1 run; Brody Dixon 3 hits and 1 run; Isiah Stupart 1 hit and 1 run; Chase Ford 1 hit; and Skylar Pelfrey 2 hits.
