The Lady Cougars tied the game in bottom of the first on an RBI single into shallow left by Abeni Fuller. Brookhaven Academy added to its lead in the bottom of the second inning on an RBI double by Kailyn Jordan to make 2-1 Lady Cougars.

Bowling Green tied the game up at 2-2 in the top of the third on an RBI single. Bowling Green threatened to score more in the third by loading the bases, but the Lady Cougar defense got out of the inning.

Both defenses kept the game tied the rest of the way. Still tied at 2-2, the game went to the seventh inning. Pitcher Madi Smith of Brookhaven Academy got the outs in the seventh by forcing ground balls and letting her defense make the plays to end the seventh.
