The game ended 21-2 in favor of St. George.
In game one on Saturday, Skyline notched runs in every inning, leading to the 14-3 win in five innings.

Nate Velasquez went 1-3 with a triple. The Raptors scored single runs in each of the second, third and fifth innings. Velasquez also was credited with the loss on the bump.
A tough Skyridge team, who beat Helper American Legion 18-12 earlier in the day, bested the Raptors, 20-0, in the final game of the weekend. The team managed just three hits in the game, all singles, off the bats of Stetson Motte, Tylane Sherman and JR Jensen. Sherman took the loss on the mound.
