A big second inning in which the Vaqueros pushed across eleven runs to extend their lead to 14-0 really carried the momentum the rest of the way.

For the Vaqueros they got things rolling in the top of the first inning when Alexa Williams (3-4, 5 RBI) drove in Katie Collier (3-6, 4R, RBI) and Allyson Von Yokes (4-6, 2R, 4 RBI, 2B) ripped a double that scored both Hannah Davis (4-5, 4R, 5 RBI) and Brandy Taylor (3R). El Capitan would round out their scoring as Von Yokes came into score on a wild pitch to make it 4-0.

The bats for El Capitan really came alive in the top of the fifth starting with a one-out solo home run by Madison Michalek-Rosales (5-5, 5R, 3 RBI, HR), a couple batters later Davis singled to score Collier to make it 6-0, Williams walked, Taylor into run and Von Yokes singled to score Davis making it 7-0. A few batters later Taylor North (1-3, 2R, 3 RBI, 3B) would rip a triple that scored Katy Hicks (1-1, R, RBI), Olivia Martinez (3R, RBI) and Brooklyn Fukushima (R, RBI) which extended the lead to 12-0. El Capitan pushed across three more runs to make it 15-0.
