Bob Jones scored single runs in the bottom of the second and third to take a 2-1 lead.

Hartselle would retake the lead, 4-2, with three runs in the top of the fifth inning. Larissa Preuitt, who singled with one out, scored on a Kaelyn Jones single after stealing second and advancing to third on the Bob Jones’ catcher’s throwing error.
