Franklin 3, Summit 2: Following seven scoreless innings, both teams awakened their bats in the eighth inning with the host Lady Admirals getting the extra run they needed on a Summit error that allowed two runs to score on a ground ball in the infield. In the top of the eighth, Summit got an RBI on a suicide squeeze from Ellery Stephenson, and she would later score on a Franklin error to give the Spartan women a 2-0 lead.
