It was a scoreless duel between Kemmetmueller and the Saints’ Aimee Cottrell until Rogers scored all five runs in the fifth inning. Melea Bruns knocked in the first round, and Kaitlyn Lloyd and Maddie Mickolich each had a two-run single.

Lloyd was 3-for-4, Bruns 2-for-4, and Emily Hanford 2-for-4.
