After Cross Tech failed to score in the top of the fifth, Softball Inc. came up with three runs to knot the game at eight after five complete innings. Softball Inc. added to their total with a three-run shot by Aaron Smith.

They scored seven runs on a three-run shot by Andres Poche, a solo shot by St. Pierre, a two-run single by Dale Harris and an RBI single off the bat of Jose Codero to lead 15-9 after six innings.
