Pfeiffer would score early in the first as reigning conference player of the week Ashlee Ellen continued her tear with a RBI-double to right-center scoring Sadie Saine. On the same play, Hannah Jackson would score on a throwing error to make it 2-0 Lady Falcons.

Again in game two, a pair of early runs for the hosts faded away late as North Greenville again scored two to help force extra innings. In the first, Ellen singled home Saine once again while Saine doubled home Celia Dew for a 2-0 lead in the second. In the fourth, a Kimberly Robertson groundout and Amy Nagel RBI-single would knot things up at two as North Greenville once again tallied two more unearned runs. In the eighth, Khristin Isley would become the hero lacing a single to left scoring Jaclyn Boever for a 3-2 walkoff win. Pfeiffer would pound North Greenville in the hit department 12-4 in game two.
