Medina jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning as Destiny Satkowski led off the game with a home run.

However, Roy-Hart answered back with two runs in the bottom of the first on a triple by Kayla Brown and an error and the sea-saw battle was on.

Medina went up 3-2 in the top of the third on a two-run single by Emily Kams but Roy-Hart again answered with two runs in the home half of the frame on a sacrifice by Rachael Rausch and a passed ball.

The Lady Rams then went up 6-3 in the fourth as Albee had an RBI single.

This time it was Medina’s turn to rally as the Mustangs retied the contest at 6-6 with three tallies in the fifth on a two-run single by Kayla Cuadra and an RBI single by Kams.
