The bats for Mont Alto were also on fire as they scored 2 runs in the first, 3 in the second, and 3 more in the third to take a commanding lead.

Mont Alto had 10 hits and Miller helped from the mound with 5 strike outs and gave up only 3 hits for the game.
Penn College's Dana Ritter had her team's only RBI of the game.
The second game would be offensive on both sides as both teams would go on scoring sprees. Mont Alto's Helena DeShong would total 3 RBIs on two hits. Her team would total 17 hits, including a triple from Mackenzie Trafka.
The final for the second game was 10-9 in favor of Mont Alto as they took both games of the double header.
