In the seventh, Union added a solo run to make the score 11-6.

Union would score three more runs in the eighth while letting LWC score a run of their own to close out the inning 14-7.

Lindsey Wilson would make things interesting in the bottom of the ninth, scoring four runs to make the score 14-11. The Blue Raiders would load the bases with two outs in the inning but their ninth-inning comeback bid would fall short.
