Sammi Shivock hit a double to right center field that put the Flames back ahead in the top of the seventh, as Jill Stephens and Marybeth Sciolino each advanced home.

Winans reached first for the Chanticleers in the bottom of the seventh with two outs, but Coastal picked up the third out of the inning during the next at bat to end the game.

Maples ended the day with two hits and one RBI in three at bats, along with three putouts and one assist. Quolas posted one hit, one RBI and one run in two at bats and was walked once.
