Wyalusing had a scoring opportunities in the top of the 4th and 5th innings, but the Lady Mounties played tight D and pitched efficiently to get themselves out of the jams.

North Penn-Liberty tacked on another run in the bottom of the 6th as Harvey scored off a passed ball to give them a little cushion of a lead going into the 7th.

Wyalusing threatened in their final inning and they scored their first run off a blooper behind first to cut the Lady Mounties lead in half, making the score 2-1.

The Lady Rams had runners at the corners with only one out as Taylor Shum popped up a bunt right in front of home plate, while attempting a safety squeeze. Third baseman Lauren Smith executed the play of the night as she sprinted and dove to make the catch, then whipped the ball over to first to double up the runner.

The Lady Mounties went on to win with a score final score of 2-1.
