Sayre tied the game up with a 5-run 5th inning and the game remained tied until the 7th. With two outs Abernathy reached on an error then scored on a base hit by senior Rylie Boyce for the winning run.

Bordas, Boyce, and Borden were all 2-for-4 at the plate, junior Abby Owlett was 2-for-5, and senior Molly Ingerick, junior Caralyn Warner, Del Rio, and Hoover added the remaining hits. Bordas (2), Abernathy (2), Warner (2), Boyce, Owlett, Ingerick, Borden, Del Rio and Hoover all scored for Wellsboro.
