SEDALIA -- It didn't go as planned.

But for the Washington Post 218 Senior Legion team, playing a second game Saturday at Liberty Park Stadium's Dey Field resulted in history.

By virtue of a 9-1 victory, Washington Post 218 (39-8) claimed its first Senior Legion state title since 1989.

It marked the second state title for Post 218 this season. Washington's Freshman Legion team won its first-ever state title during July in Branson.

Washington now has claimed five state titles -- 1957, 1989, 2005 (Junior), 2012 (Freshman) and 2012 (Senior).

Mid-South Regional

With the win, Washington now advances to the Mid-South Regional Tournament being held at Kirsch Rooney Stadium in New Orleans Aug. 9-13.

Post 218 will open action Thursday against the host team as part of a doubleheader which starts at 4:30 p.m.

The first game will feature Oklahoma's champion against the Louisiana winner. The second game will be Post 218 taking on the host.

The first doubleheader of the day starts at 9:30 a.m. and features the Mississippi and Arkansas winners facing each other. The second game pits Kansas against Tennessee.

The loser of Washington's game plays the second game of the 9:30 a.m. doubleheader Friday, Aug. 10. The winner gets the nightcap of the 4:30 p.m. doubleheader.

Washington's second-round opponent will be the team with the same result from the Kansas-Tennessee game.

The double-elimination tournament runs through Monday, Aug. 13. The region winner advances directly to the National Tournament in Shelby, N.C.

Winner-Take-All Game

Brendan Feldmann went the distance as Washington breezed through the second championship game Saturday.

Through nine innings, Feldmann used 111 pitches while allowing one run on six hits and two walks. He struck out four.

Washington took the lead in the fourth inning with one run. Sam Deschenes flied around from second on a Jack Kopmann single.

In the fifth, Post 218 broke through for three additional runs on its biggest hit of the game. That came off the bat of Mike McGilvray. With Grant Eckelkamp and Trent Leimkuehler on base, McGilvray drilled a Jonathan Brand pitch over the right field fence.

That seemed to break the tension. Washington added one run in the sixth on a Grant Eckelkamp bunt which scored Kopmann.

Post 218 broke through for four in the seventh to go up 9-0 before Creve Coeur scored in the bottom of the seventh.

Leimkuehler, McGilvray, Deschenes and Kopmann all crossed the plate. McGilvray had the lone extra-base hit, a double. Dustin Howard, Deschenes, Kopmann and Noah Borgerding recorded RBIs.

Post 218 rapped out 15 hits, including four by Kopmann. McGilvray, Eckelkamp, Dilan Bollmann and Borgerding each had two hits. Deschenes, Leimkuehler and Matt Jones each had one hit.

First Title Game

Creve Coeur forced a second game by winning in the day's first contest, 8-1.

Post 397 got a huge outing from starting pitcher Jonathan Rembold, one of the only pitchers to master Post 218 multiple times this season.

Rembold, who also pitched in the first game between the two teams back in June, went seven innings while allowing one run on four hits and two walks.

Brand allowed one hit over the final two innings for Creve Coeur.

Creve Coeur dominated the game. Post 397 recorded 14 hits but left 16 runners on base. Creve Coeur took advantage of 12 Washington errors.

Jordan Goldenberg and Keith Coulson each posted three hits. Lucas Mueller and Dan McCune each had two.

Creve Coeur scored once in the first, once in the third and twice in the fourth before Washington scored its lone run in the bottom of the fourth.

Leimkuehler led off the fourth with a double, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly by McGilvray.

Post 397 closed it with four runs in the top of the ninth.

Washington had five hits but had no Creve Coeur errors to help. Post 218 stranded seven.

Cody Gardner, in his third state tournament, took the loss. Over eight innings, he allowed four runs (three earned) on 11 hits and two walks. He struck out four.

Jones pitched the ninth, allowing four unearned runs on three hits while striking out one.

Leimkuehler led the team with two hits. Howard, Borgerding and Deschenes had the other hits.

Complete coverage of the state tournament and a preview of the regional event will be in the Wednesday Missourian.
