In the first game, HU scored once in their first at-bat and then the Maple Leafs took a brief 2-1 lead in the top of the fourth. The Foresters rallied with six runs on the bottom of the inning and effectively put the game out of reach. After a scoreless fifth inning, Goshen had runners on first and third with one out in the top of the sixth when the game was called due to poor weather conditions.

Lauren Ward moved to 7-4 on the season with the win. She threw five and a third innings and gave up two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out 10. Ashley Scally led HU's attack with two hits and two RBI.
