Ashton Hughes then followed up with a bunt single loading the bases for the top of the order.

Olivia Strank had other plans however as she hit a two out 2 RBI single into shallow right field putting the Rebels up 3-0.
The Rebels added insurance runs in the 3rd, 6th and 7th innings to make their lead even more commanding. Baylis Bettura helped out with the late runs gathering 2 RBI.
