In the winner take all Sonoma Little League Championship game, the Angels upset the regular season Champion Falcons to take the City Championship Title at Hughes Field. The Angels took an early 4-0 lead, but the Falcons battled back to even the game at 4-4. The score remained tied until the 5th inning when the Angels took advantage of 3 walks and 3 singles to break the game open and eventually hold on to a 9-5 victory. The Angels were led offensively by Sam Denkin and Luc Demartini who knocked out 3 hits apiece and got strong pitching from Finn Parker and Enzo Masciorini. The Falcons got 2 hits apiece from Jaden Vides (who hit his league leading 16th HR), Brett Armitage & Thomas Walsh in the loss.

Angels 0 Napa National 2
The Suisun win put the Angels in the semi-final game vs eventual District 53 Champion Napa National.

Finn Parker pitched outstanding in the loss going 5-1/3 innings and striking out 13 Napa hitters.
