The Eagles scored a run early in the game, but Greene County came storming back in the bottom of the first inning when Maudi Paniagua hit a two run homerun to give the home team the lead. The Rams continued to lead 2-1 until the fifth when the Eagles put up four runs, and the Rams could only answer with one. Greene County added another run in the bottom of the sixth, but it was not enough to pull ahead. Other hits besides the home run from Paniagua were a double from Hannah Cooklin, two singles from Bailey Godwin, and one single each from Katelyn Hagen, MacKenzie Dennhardt, and Hannah Promes.
