Faith Matta singled to start the second inning and went to second on an error. After stealing third, Matta scored on Snemis' ground out.

Two more runs in the third started with a leadoff home run from Benko and Hope Matta scored on a passed ball to push the lead to 5-0.

Cassidy Grimm's sacrifice fly plated Faith Matta in the fourth inning and Mae Mallon's fifth inning home run completed the scoring.
