A home run by Jen Masse and a triple by Chatt then sparked the third inning burst which also included singles by Seefeldt and Allen.

Banes later put a lock on the win by scoring three times in the fifth on singles by Seefeldt, Masse, Allen and Blaun.

Seefeldt finished with a total of 3 hits as Masse, Allen, Blaun and Chatt each had 2.
