Catawba led 1-0 in the opener through four innings, getting a leadoff double in the fourth by Jessica Rivera (Key West, FL) and a sacrifice fly from Katie Phelps (Prince Frederick, MD). The Bears took the lead in the fifth as Karen Reames (Laurens, SC) beat out an infield single that scored two to give L-R the 2-1 lead. The Bears added two more runs in the sixth on RBI hits from Misty Bingham (Tega Cay, SC) and Casey Ledford (Newton, NC) before the Indians scored on an L-R throwing error in the top of the seventh which made it a 4-2 final.
