The third inning was a repeat of the second for the Lady Commodores. Perry Central used the barrage to jump ahead 15-2. Pikeville picked up a run in the bottom of the inning, but the Lady Commodores erased it in the fourth.
The two teams traded runs in the fifth inning, giving Perry Central the 18-4 lead. The margin brought the game to an early end, with the Lady Commodores claiming the win.
