Katy Swartz and Lynn Vermilya provided the offense for Warrior Run (13-2, 10-2 HAC-II). Swartz hit a double and a triple and had two RBIs, while Vermilya hit an RBI triple for the Defenders.

Blair Johnston hit an RBI double for Southern (11-5).

Dani Lincoln added two hits with a double, two RBIs and three runs scored, plus Mary Adams and Bayli Derr had an additional five combined RBIs and four runs scored for Milton (10-2 overall and HAC-I).
