DuBois would have a huge inning in the seventh, scoring six runs to take commanding lead in the must win game. Scott would finish them off in the bottom of the seventh, and DuBois would survive to advance to the next round. They will play at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 19, against D'Youville College from Buffalo, New York.

Larissa James-LaBranche and Aspen Bishop went 2 for 4 each, with Bishop driving in two runs. Brooke Harvey would add another two RBI's. Scott pitched a complete game allowing only two earned runs on six hits.
