The Nighthawks had 13 hits and worked nine walks. The first three Newtown batters each earned base on balls, setting the tone for the game.

Madelyn Winzig went 2-for-4 with four runs batted in and a run scored. Ryssa Swanson was 2-for-5, including a double, drove in two runs, and scored twice.

Sienna Cummings had two hits and scored a pair of runs. Jackie Moccio and Katie Goyda each scored three times. Kendra Saunders and Kim Buttery both crossed home plate twice.

Shauna Tucker earned the win in the pitcher's circle. She allowed seven hits, struck out three, and did not walk a batter.
