The Wildcats managed just two hits in losing the season finale.  Senior Donovan Reyes singled in the first inning with two outs to put runners on first and second, but they failed to score.  Woodmore had runners on first and second and one out in the fourth inning and were retired on a fly out and strikeout.  The other Woodmore hit came in the fifth inning by senior Mitchell Miller and Reyes followed by reaching on an error to give Woodmore runners on first and second with two outs but the inning ended on a fly out.  Woodmore used five different pitchers in the game.  Seven of Otsego's eight runs were earned.  Otsego had four doubles and a triple among its eight hits.  Woodmore ends the season with an 8-15 overall record and a 2-12 mark in Northern Buckeye Conference play.

Woodmore took a 4-1 lead into the bottom of the seventh, but couldn't hold on for the victory.  Otsego scored the winning runs in the seventh when they drew a walk to start the inning and a double put runners at second and third.  An error allowed the first run to score.  A ground out plated the second run.  A single put runners at first and third and another single plated the tying run.  Otsego then stroked a double for the game-winner.  Woodmore took the lead with three runs in the fifth inning with two of the runs scoring on an error and freshman DJ Melter tripled in the third run.  In the seventh, Woodmore took a 4-1 advantage scoring a run on a Melter single after freshman Mike Brzeczek had tripled.  Brzeczek started and worked into the seventh inning allowing four hits and four runs (three earned) with six strikeouts and five walks.  Sophomore Steven Carer faced the last four batters getting one out and allowing three hits and an earned run.  Melter had two hits and six other players each had one.  Woodmore left six runners stranded.
