Young yielded just three earned runs through seven innings as the Loggers (4-30, 1-21 NWC) and Bruins (26-8, 16-16 NWC) remained close through the first five innings. George Fox held a 2-0 edge after two innings, but Puget Sound evened the scored in the home half of the third.

Young reached base on an error by the shortstop, and Amelia dropped down a sacrifice bunt to move Young into scoring position. Jessica Gott followed with an RBI single to right field to put the Loggers on the board. Haley Gray's infield single put two runners on base for Lisa Colombo, who reached base on an error that allowed Gott to score the game-tying run.

A pair of Puget Sound errors in the sixth inning helped the Bruins score four runs to seal the win.
