Ironton needed a win to capture the District 11 championship and earn a berth in the state tournament. But Ironton lost 14-0 in 4 innings on Sunday to the Northwest All-Stars to set up a showdown between the teams at 6 p.m. on Monday at the Green Little League.

The winner of Monday’s game will claim both the district title and state berth. Ironton beat Northwest 16-6 on Saturday to claim the winner’s bracket in the double elimination tournament.

Ironton was limited to just one hit — a single bye Aiden Meyers.

Northwest used a big 11-run second inning to put the game away.
