Bottom of the first Mary Baxter once again singled to left field to start things off but was left on base. North Greenville answered back top of the 3rd with their first run off a HBP and then a double to left field. In attempted to score again, Baxter walked and sophomore Becky Collins singled to move her over but a couple of fielder's choices later left the Lions once again scoreless. The Crusaders would then capitalize on their rally top of the 5th to score another run off a single and a double. North Greenville would go on to score 4 more runs off a couple home runs leaving the final score 0-6.
