Lindsey Miller (Gettysburg, Pa./New Oxford), who had five hits on day, led off game two with one of her three triples on the day.

Megan Coyle (Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman) followed with an RBI single to left before a fielding error and wild pitch put Olivia Kipe (Manchester, Md./Manchester Valley) on second and Coyle on third.

Weisser dropped a single into left to plate Coyle for a 2-0 lead and lead to a pitching change after just four batters.

A Haley Michael (Oldsmar, Fla./East Lake) walk loaded the bases before a Kaitlin Yealy (Littlestown, Pa./Littlestown) sacrifice fly made it a 3-0 game.

Morgan Scardina (Pasadena, Md./Seton Keough) singled to reload the bases before Alejandra Mata's (Miramar, Fla./Cooper City) RBI groundout scored Weisser for a 4-0 lead.

A fielding error and Miller RBI single pushed the advantage to 6-0 in the third.

A Haley Koeninger two-run double keyed a three-run bottom of the third that cut the margin to 6-3.

A Kipe triple and Weisser double in the sixth made it 7-3 before doubles from Yealy and Scardina set the final margin in the seventh.

Miller had three hits in game two while Scardina added two.

In game one, Lindsay Corbin drew a walk to lead off the fourth before an error and one-out Karli Rorabaugh single up the middle staked Shenandoah to a 2-0 lead.

A Miller triple and Payton Lewis (Valrico, Fla./Durant) RBI groundout cut the deficit in half in the top of the sixth.

A Corbin infield single, error on the ensuing sacrifice and Janae RBI groundout stretched the lead back to two.
