BUHLER - Tournament officials were going to determine the champion of the Bob Hooper Showcase by rock-paper-scissors, then after the Hays Eagles objected, by a coin flip. In the end, no champion was declared after severe storms prevented the title game from being played.

The Hays Senior Eagles were to play Buhler, a team they swept earlier in the week, in the title game after beating Great Bend 6-3 in Sunday's semifinals.

Hays (7-0) scored three in the first then tacked on two in the sixth after the Chiefs (5-5) closed the gap to one.

Carson Jacobs scored on a double-steal then Dalton Dale singled to left for the final run.

Dale picked up the win on the mound, allowing two runs over 2 2/3 innings. Dale struck out three and walked three.

Brady Kreutzer picked up the save after pitching two scoreless innings of relief.

The Eagles host Smith Center Wednesday at the Hays High Field then begin play at the Salina Grand Slam Thursday afternoon.
