Nashville Scrappers understand their mascot as they have scrapped all season rattling off 29 wins. Nashville looks to repeat as State Champions but up against the same team as last year. Nashville has a balanced team and an offense that can put up runs in a hurry. Coach Slayton has his team playing well down the stretch and will be a great battle for the 4A Title.

A rematch of last year's state championship game Shiloh is as hot as anyone coming off thier Regional Loss to Pottsville in which they avenged in the state semifinal game 8-1. Shiloh will ride Landon Brown’s arm and the senior heavy line up to see if they can be the last one standing against the Scrappers. A tall task but the Saints have shown resilience grinding their way back to the championship game for the third year in a row.
