Olivia Mora generated five runs batted in and scored two to lead the Windham offense. Danielle Tardiff also contributed scoring one run and batting in two. saw a different battery against Westbrook as Tardiff got a rest. However, that was only defensively speaking. Tardiff and Megan Joy each scored three runs and Alex Morang and Katie Hunter scored two each to help Windham get the 13-6 victory. Erin Elder, Katie Hunter and Lily MacPherson combined as pitchers to help Windham to their ninth victory.
