Shawnee took a 1-0 advantage in the top of the first inning when Layne Rimer doubled to center with one out and scored of a Tatum Sparks single to right field. Sparks ended up at second base after the throw.

The Lady Wolves added the only other score in the game in the sixth when Reed hit a one-out double to center. After Adesyn Waite was hit by a pitch, Wilson came through with an RBI infield single to second base, scoring Reed.

Rimer finished 3-for-5 from the plate with the double and a run scored. Sparks finished 2-for-3 with a double, one RBI and a walk and Reed was 2-for-3 as well with a double and a run scored. Waite finished 1-for-2 from the dish.
