The Lady Jaguars added two more runs in the third inning, as Sidney Herrell collected her second hit of the game and then proceeded to steal second base.

Herrell scored after to make the score 5-0 after touching home plate on a double steal that saw Kailin Yantz end up at second base. Yantz was driven in by Blake Johnson, who connected with a run-scoring single which made the score 4-0.

North Laurel added two insurance runs in the fifth inning, as Yantz delivered a double and was driven in thanks to a run-scoring hit by Vanessa Smith. Strong followed by driving in Smith.
