Anna Wagner added the Cougars final run in the fifth, reaching on a single and stealing her way to third, before scoring.

The Mustangs plated five runs in each of the fifth and sixth innings, enough to shorten the game to six innings. Highlighting the scoring, Weimer had her second double of the day, Ursprung added one of her own, and freshman shortstop Emily Kim delivered her own RBI double as well.
