ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Jake Klekamp powered the Vikings offense and pitched Guilford to its first regional title win in 12 years after defeating DeKalb 2-1 on Saturday.

Klekamp pitched a complete game giving up just one run while striking out seven. He also had the Vikings first RBI of the game when he smacked an Eric Nelson pitch in the fifth to the fence in right center.

The game was decided in the bottom of the seventh when Max Klein hit a walk-off to win the 4A regional at home for Guilford.
