The Rules Committee, Coaches, and District/Dtate Dixie Youth officers met and it was concluded that since the young pitcher was inserted in the first inning, the contest would have to be restarted to correct the rules violation.

Game 2 of the same series restarted immediately around 10:10 p.m. The Walthall All-Stars ended up winning the contest with a final score of 16-8 eliminating the Lincoln County National All-Stars.

The stats for game one were voided because of the ineligible pitcher. In Game 2, Brandon Burt provided a gutsy pitching performance for the Nationals who threw four innings and Jared Anderson pitched the final 2 frames.

Offensively: Mason White lead the Nationals with a double and a single. Caden White contributed with two singles. Jared Anderson, Brandon Burt, and Conner Cunningham hit safely.
