August 1, 2015
Englewood A's vs. 0 Brothers (Staten Island Baseball Alliance)
 
Bryan Halberg (Nyack Indians) of Englewood and Andy Wells of Brothers went at it toe for toe in a pitchers duel for the ages in the 2nd semi-final game at Foschini park in Hackensack. Wells retired the first nine A's on strike outs in order thru 3 innings and the first 10 he faced overall.

Neither team could break through on the other's ace as Brothers left a total of 10 men on base. However, it was the A's who finally got to Wells with 2 outs and no one on in the top of the 9th when Rich Baerga (Nyack Indians) tripled to deep right center and was driven home by Robin Roberts' single thru the right side. Wells allowed on 4 hits (2 until those final 2 in the 9th) and struck out 15 A's without issuing a walk in his complete game.
