Hayley and Jenni Smolke both went 3-4, while Rebecca Anderson contributed a triple and Desirae Guscette doubled. Samantha Harting took the loss, striking out four and giving up eight hits. In Game Two, the Raiders grabbed a 4-0 lead and belted extra bases on five of their seven hits. Kaylie Hanson tripled and Hayley H, Desirae, Carlie Sweet and Nicole Marcy all doubled.
