Looking to clinch a spot in the championships, the Hawks wasted no time on Sunday night in grabbing an early lead. In the top of the first, Ian Griffin drove in two runs on a single, before he scored on a passed ball, and Mike Simms hit an RBI single to give the Hawks a 4-0 lead.
The Aces would score one on a Brady Sheppard RBI single in the third, but the Hawks would get that run right back on a Cory Lockyer RBI single the very next inning.
The Aces did try to make it close, with Andrew Payne knocking in a run before Ryan Lombard worked a bases loaded walk, but that would be all the runs they could muster, as the Hawks piled on to their lead for the rest of the game.
The Hawks scored 5 runs over the final three frames, capitalizing on some key errors, and Hawks pitcher Ryder Penney would shut the door on the Monarchs' season as he secured his team's spot in the finals.
