PH loaded the bases in the second on two walks and a hit batter, but Liddick retired Dixon on an infield pop fly to protect the 1-0 lead.
The top of the third is an inning the Argylls will regret for a long time. With one out, Kayla Stanley doubled to center and went to third on an Arabian error. But Stanley decided to try and score on the play. The throw came to PH catcher Jordan Dean ahead of Stanley's arrival. Stanley crashed into Dean and Dean went down to the ground. After she landed and the umpire called Stanley out, the ball was laying on the dirt.
After a conference among the three umpires, it was determined that Dean held the ball long enough for the out. It was a run the Argylls would later need.
Pendleton tied the game in the fifth. Breanna Pryor walked for the second time in the game and was sacrificed to second by Dixon. Wendling bunted for a single but the throw to first was wild and Pryor scored. Wendling advanced to third but was erased when Wright bunted into a double play.
Benefiel closed the door on the Argylls over the final three innings, allowing no hits and only one baserunner.
In the bottom of the seventh, the Arabians won the game. Sydney Windlan singled and went to second on an errant throw back to the infield. Ashley King put down a sacrifice bunt, but the throw to first allowed her to reach safely with Windlan going to third.
With Pryor at the plate, a wild pitch allowed Windlan to score with the winning run.
