The Lady Rams upped the lead to 8-1 by scoring once in the third on a sacrifice fly by May and three times in the fourth as Kaitlin Mettler had a two-run double and winning pitcher Abby Fox an RBI triple.

Mettler later had an RBI double and a two-run single during a big 7 run sixth inning which also included an RBI single by Hayley Hillburn.

Cami London belted a two-run home run in the fifth inning for Albion which also got an RBI single by Taylor LeFrois in the sixth and an RBI double by Aubrielle Barry in the seventh.

Fox registered 6 strikeouts in the circle.
