In the first inning Korsky reached on a dropped third strike and Emma Maggs reached on an error, which puts the runners on second and third with no outs.

After Wolf got a strikeout she had a ball hit back to her and she tagged out the runner, then flipped the ball to third where they caught the next Edison base runner in a run down and got the final out of the inning.

In the second inning McIver walked and Mariana Jones-Frosolone reached on an error, again putting runners on second and third with no outs.

Again Wolf got the first out by strikeout. Emily Aiello reached on a fielder’s choice to load the bases with one out, but Wolf got two more strikeouts to end the threat.

In the third inning Korsky singled and after Wolf got a strikeout Kailey Ripley walked. Milazzo then walked to load the bases with one out.

The ball was bunted to Wolf who made the catch and fired the ball to first to double off the runner and end the threat.
