Makayla Mobley led the red and gold from the plate, getting one run, two hits and three RBIs while also getting four strikeouts against East.​
West Valley was down by one heading into the top of the sixth, and they found their groove to score six runs to retake the lead thanks in large part to a three run double from Kendra Michaelis.​

Dimond won 17-3 over West Valley thanks to the offense from Maila Ogee.​
Ogee finished with three runs, one hit and five RBIs.​
For the Wolfpack, Traci McGee led with one run, two hits and two RBIs, including a homer in the bottom of the fourth.​
In this double elimination bracket, the Wolfpack now face their conference rivals in the Wasilla Warriors.​
