Shawna Carbone pitched well in defeat for the Lady Panthers. Carbone gave up just four hits, did not walk a batter and struckout 13.

Danielle Engel’s three hits and five RBI sparked Prairie Heights to a 16-6 triumph in the nightcap. Carbone ripped a pair of doubles and drove in two runs. Emily German had two hits and two RBI, Alex Messer and Brennica Smith each lined RBI singles, and Vanwagner had two hits.
