The Knights would take advantage of three errors committed by the Sultans in the bottom of the third inning which led to a 3-0 lead.

Both Leilani Williams and Caylene Nguyen each drove in a pair of runs for the Knights while Mariah Diaz drove in the other run.

On the other for the Sultans, Kassidy Harper would have a pair of hits including a double while Samantha Sullivan and Madison Jordan each had a hit on the day to round out the offense.
