The Cougars scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth to take a 4-2 lead, but then allowed three runs in the top of the seventh. Trinity was able to score one in the bottom of the seventh to force extras, but then lost an inning later.

Grace Lance had two hits for Trinity, and Kamzi Gross, Madison Keith, Olivia Cain, Hannah Kerkhof, Morgan Brewer and Amanda Fink all had one hit. Lance and Gross both had two RBI each, and Keith had the other. Keith had her second homerun of the season.
