The Sabers went into the bottom of the seventh inning trailing 4-2. Megan Anderson led off the inning with a walk. Roby hit a triple that scored Anderson. Roby scored on a sacrifice fly by Hugen to tie the game at 4-4 and send it into extra innings.

Both teams scored a run in the ninth inning. Hugen had an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game at 5-5. The Sabers held Murray scoreless in the top of the 10th.

Bailey Dunkin led off with a double in the bottom of the 10th. Dunkin moved to third base on a Baylee Zellmer. Anderson came through with a single that scored Dunkin. Twin Cedars walked off with the 6-5 win.
