The Blue Raiders would be held scoreless for two innings while giving up three runs to add to the Union lead. In the top of the sixth, Union scored three runs before Lindsey Wilson was able to take one back, cutting the Bulldog advantage to 10-6. 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.
