After a two-RBI double in the sixth by Jake Smith, Roosevelt led 5-2 heading to the bottom of the seventh.  West plated one run to make it 5-3, and then Strunk sent heartbreak through Rider nation, a deep home run to left center with two outs.

Roosevelt finishes the season 33-11.

Iowa City West will face Cedar Rapids Prairie Saturday night in the 4A Championship.
