The Resorters trailed 9-8 going into their half of the seventh. Megan Waage led off with a single and later scored the tying run. Maddie Schneider scored the winning run on an error.

Elkhart upped its Big East Conference record to 2-1 (3-2 overall). The Resorters clobbered the Rockets, 15-3, in the nightcap.

Only game one counts in the Big East Conference standings because several BEC games were postponed this season due to the inclement weather and some of the league teams may not be able to make up all of the games.
