Sydney Williams singled with a hard grounder up the middle, advanced to second, then third on passed balls and was able to cross the plate on a Knightstown error. Knightstown tied it 1-1 in the top of the second when their center fielder hit an double, then was able to score on the next play when IC made a fielding error. The Braves answered back by scoring two runs in the bottom second on a two-run single by Brittney Dugan. In the fifth inning, Rachel Kyle was walked, stole second, then advanced to third by a line drive single from Micheala Smith. A Knightstown error allowed Kyle to score extending the Braves lead.
