Todd Central scored 3 in the top of the 6th to go back in front 13-10. But the Lady Raiders scored three of their own in the bottom half of the inning to even things back up at 13-13.

Sam Case drove in a run on a ground out in the top of the 7th to put the Lady Rebels up 14-13. However, the Lady Rebels scored two runs in the bottom of the inning, the last coming on a walkoff RBI single with two outs to close out the game.

Sam Case was 3-5 on the afternoon, with a home run, 4 RBIs, and 3 runs scored. Jordan Weathers was 4-5, with 2 RBIs, and three runs scored. Abby McPherson ended up 1-4, with an RBI, and 2 runs scored. Whitney Higgins was 2-2, with 4 RBIs.
