Jane Hursey struck out 17 over the two games for Suttons Bay. The Norse tied the game in the top of the sixth when Hursey singled, moved to second on a bunt and scored on two passed balls. One inning later they took the lead when Tori Gauden reached on an error and scored on Veronica Anderson's RBI double. Anderson also scored to give Suttons Bay a two-run lead.

Anna Steed and Hursey had two hits apiece in the second game.

Olivia Wilcher had two hits to lead the Lakers.
