A Shawn Thompson sac fly in the bottom of the sixth inning, proved to be the game winner as Team Davis rallied from three down to win the FWS by the score of 6-3. Game 3 was another nail bitter as Team Allen jumped up 3-1 after the first three frames.

"What a great way to end the fall," noted Patriot Skipper Luther Bramblett. "Our guys played three hard and very competitive games with all three going either way. It was great to see our freshmen compete the way they did, as well as our transfers. If we play and compete like we did the last three days all year, its going to be a fun spring!"
The talent show for Team Allen and staff will be announced soon.
