However, Roanoke would get two more runs in the bottom half of the inning to extend their lead to 5-2 before Deaton plated Macy Brewer for the game’s final run in the fifth with a single down the right field line.
Cassie Collins had a team leading two hits in the loss while Wetherholt was credited with the loss.

However, Roanoke was able to score three runs over the next two innings and took a 3-1 lead into the seventh.
In the top half of the seventh, Allyson Loy and Collins both had RBI hits while Loy and Macey Brewer scored on a pair of Maroon errors to give the Pride a 6-3 lead.
