The Falcons entered the game as the No. 1 seed with an 11-1 record, also making it the team’s third straight appearance in the championship.

“We came into the game with confidence due to our tough defensive play throughout the regular season,” said Nico George, Falcons head coach.

The team is comprised of military dependents and civilians.

“As a former Airman, I am proud to represent the Air Force on the baseball field and be part of the team,” said Jeremy Rojas, Falcons starting pitcher.

The Falcons played tough defensive throughout the first four innings of the game and had a commanding 6-0 lead. The Bushwhacker’s bats started connecting in the fifth, scoring 8 runs to take the lead.

The tide had turned in favor of Peoria as the Falcons were unable to contain the Bushwhacker’s late run giving them a 10-6 victory.

“We are going to use this game as a learning experience to improve during the off-season,” George said.
