In game one of the double header, Beaver jumped out to an early 2-0 lead after the third inning off of a sacrifice bunt by Brittany Garza (La Feria, TX / La Feria) that scored Asia Borders (Ellwood City, PA / Ellwood) and an error by the Scranton defense that allowed Jenna Petrucci (New Castle, PA / Shenango) to score.

After a scoreless fourth, Beaver continued to slowly grow their lead adding a run in the fifth, two more in the sixth and one last run in the seventh to take the 6-0 win.

Leading the offense were Vanessa Jackson (Snohomish, WA / Snohomish), Dina Cable (Mannington, NJ / Salem County Vo Tech) and Borders who each contributed two hits in the game.  Pitching the shut out was Jackson who gave up just three hits while striking out four.
