第123回秋季九州地区高校野球大会 (123rd Fall Kyushu Tournament)

Taking a short flight over to Saga-ken, we hit the final region, the Kyushu Fall Tournament.

And aside from a scare against Fukuokadai Oohori, Seihou (Nagasaki) cruises to the title, shutting out new power Kamimura Gakuen (Kagoshima) 4-0.

A lot of new faces are here in the tournament, but there are still some familiar ones as well. Ogi (Saga) fell to the aforementioned Fukuokadai Oohori 4-3. Meihou (Oita) made it to the semifinals before falling to Seihou 6-2.

More on this later, but it's back to Hanshin Koushien Kyuujyou for the opening of the spring tournament!
