It was Kielar who led the top half of the bracket, scoring victories over Brett Stottlemyer 7-5 and Kaloyan Rusanov 7-5. Kielar was then meant to play Brothers, who forfeited, so Kielar went on to the hot seat match. There he faced Sigel, who had already delivered Dan Madded 7-1, Jose Burgos 7-1, West 7-4, and Chau 7-6 to the west side of the chart.

Sigel pulled away late in the hot seat match to earn a 7-4 victory, while Kielar went west to try a return trip to the finals. But Brothers was making his move, ousting Jose Burgos, Stottlemyer, and Krah. He then eliminated Kielar in the semifinals to reach Sigel.

In the single race-to-7 finals, Sigel took an early 3-0 lead, but Brothers came back quickly to win the next six racks. In a counterattack, Sigel put another two games under his belt to make it 6-5, but Brothers put on a show during the last rack to win the Maryland State 10-Ball Championship.
