Junction City held off a ninth inning rally by the Midwest A's to win the final game of the Cowdin Cup championship series 1-0 at Rathert Field and clinch the Mid Plains League title.

Midwest had runners at second and third with two outs in the top of the ninth inning but Brigade relief pitcher Jackson Hill struck out Brevon Lee to get the third out and close out the victory. With that win before more than 400 fans at Rathert Field, Junction City came back from a one-oh deficit in the series to win it two games to one.

This is the sixth Mid Plains League title for the Brigade in their 10-year history.
