The Warriors (2-1, 2-1 TRC South) kept P-E-M fielders scrambling all afternoon. A pair of hits put the visitors up 1-0 in the second, and SG/C never trailed thereafter, scoring two more runs in the following frame.

Lottie Augedahl took a little bit of the wind out of Bulldog sails in the fourth with a 3-RBI double. Four singles plus a Jordan Anderson sacrifice fly in the sixth added three insurance runs.

Emily Ranzenberger went 3 for 4 for SG/C, including a double.

The Bulldogs got the most out of only four hits. P-E-M junior pitcher Haley Gudmundson went 2 for 3, breaking the ice for the home team with a fourth-inning home run.

After P-E-M stranded a runner in the fifth, catcher Josie Montgomery got hold of an 0-2 pitch for a three-run homer in the bottom of the sixth.

That was the bright spot for the Bulldogs, as Samantha Bratland dominated. The junior dynamo struck out 7 of the first 10 batters she faced and didn't relinquish a single walk until the bottom of the seventh.

It was the first loss for P-E-M (3-1, 3-1 TRC North).
