The game was called after the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Fallston's Maggie Deckleman belted out a triple and a double, while Lauren Pupa also hit a triple in the victory. The Cougars' Sam Day laced a double.

Cougar hurler Jess Moore worked through all five innings to earn the win.
