In the final it looked like Sala had a surprisingly easy time amassing a 15-3 lead. Tyree crept back to 15-18 before serving off the court. Cesar went to 20 before Bastidas was able to get back into the service box and make 3 more points. At this point "wonder boy" served into the floor. Sala was able to capitalize and score 5 more leaving Tyree on 18.
