The Warriors were visitors on the scoreboard in the first contest, scoring first in the top of the second on an RBI double by Kerri Pierce. And then busted a 1-1 game wide-open posting crooked numbers in the fifth, sixth and seventh frame. Addy ring started the outburst reaching on an error before Ava Boyer and Wilcox touched them all in the top of the fifth. Then Thomason drove in Pierce one stanza later on a round tripper before the Boyer sisters, Pierce, Czerwonka, and Thomason put the cherry on top, scoring three more in the seventh on five hits from the aforementioned.
Pierce collected the win working all seven innings giving up one run on six hits and two walks whilst striking out three. Both Boyer’s, and Taylor Musgrave all doubled in the contest and Ava tripled on a three for four, two-RBI night at the plate. Thomason drove in three on a three for three nights with the bat in her hands.
