The game was scoreless going into the seventh inning until Springfield broke it open with three runs. A lead off double by Elizabeth Joseph and a single by Chelsea Bender set up Kelly Blake's two-RBI single to put the Pride up 2-0. Blake would be cross the plate for the game's final run off a Brielle Engelbecht base hit.
