The Knights invaded Des Moines with plenty of experience and it paid off in their Quarterfinal showdown with Harlan. Mick Baker was a star on both offense and defense. The senior collected 3 hits and 4 RBI's, while making several big plays in the field. Assumption would build a 7-1 lead at one point, but it came down to another senior in the 7th. Harlan had cut the lead to 8-7 and with the tying run heading home, Jake Gervase threw and bullet home to record the 3rd out at the plate.
