It appeared that the game was up for grabs at the end of three innings of play between the Bucks and the Holliday Eagles, with the score all tied up at (5-5). However, at that point, the wheels must have fallen off for the Bucks and the Holliday Eagles garnered three more runs in the fourth, four more were added in the fifth and four more collected in the sixth when the 10-Run Rule was applied and the Brock Eagles won, (6-16).
Friday the Lady Bucks contributed to their own defeat by committing eight errors and then the lack of batting power with only four hits for the three runs scored. Meanwhile, the Lady Eagles of Holliday had 15 hits for the 13 runs scored against the Lady Bucks.
