The Fighting Camels answered in the bottom of the inning as Stephanie Jones hit a double of her own, which scored Sarah Forgacs to tie the game at 1-1. During the second inning Campbell went ahead by a run when Ericka Nesbitt hit a single to right field that scored Kerstine Womack, although she was close to being out at the plate.

Courtney Howell tied the game up at two apiece after she stole third and then advanced home on Sara Rasley’s sacrifice fly to left field. Coastal took the 3-1 lead in the fifth when Sarah Maples crossed home on Beth Kassuhn’s single to the short stop.

Nicole Saggiomo pulled the Chanticleers within a run in the top of the seventh, scoring on a single to left center by Pierre with no outs. Camel recorded three straight outs to take the game by a final of 5-4.

Maples finished the game with three hits and one run in three at bats. Pierre had two hits, two RBI in three at bats, while being walked once. Kassuhn had one hit and one RBI in three at bats. Chelsea Pineda posted six putouts in the game and Winans had three assists.
