Sakushin Gakuin beat Meijodai behind their ace Yuki Kawashima (川島祐輝), 3-1. Kawashima struck out 11 batters and tossed a complete game. It was also Kawashima's 4th complete game in a row (he started all four games of the tournament for Sakushin Gakuin).

On the mound for Mejiodai was Yuta Kobayashi (小林雄太), the young man that tossed a perfect game against Hatsushiba Tondabayashi High School on the 26th during the first round.

Sakushin Gakuin has now won the tournament 2 years in a row (a record 8 overall).
