Anna Weems scored Antonelli on a line drive to left field, and Weems crossed the dish on a sacrifice bunt by Haley Bailey for a 3-0 lead.

Sanders put North Greene in front 4-0 in the second inning. She reached base on a walk, stole second and made it all the way around on a throwing error by the catcher.

In the sixth inning Kylee Jones reached on an error and Sanders knocked her in on a ground ball to the left side for a 5-0 lead.
