The Nighthawks would get on the board in the top of the 3rd to have the slight 1-0 lead, then add seven more in the 4th.  The big play there was a bases clearing 3-run double by Sammy Blum. In the 6th inning BHRV would score 2 more on a Kaitlyn Van Der Zwaag single to move the score to 10-0, and that would be your final.

Kaitlyn Van Der Zwaag got the win with the complete game shutout, giving up just 3 hits and walking 1, while striking out nine.

Orab pitcher Nicole Johnson took the loss. Johnson gave up 6 earned runs on 5 hits and 3 walks, and struck out 3.
