Putnam County scored the game-winning run in the top of the seventh inning, with a slicing liner by Kelsie Ream going into the left-field corner for a triple, scoring Shaylee Salisbury from third base. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Trenton hit into "tough luck", leading off and finishing the inning with line-drive outs to Putnam County infielders, leaving McKinley Hurley stranded at third base in the process.

Trenton took a 1-0 lead in the first inning, with Cassidy Cotton knocking in Tosha Wilson with a two-out single. Tom Johnson had the play-by-play call:

Putnam County rallied with four straight hits to grab the lead away in the fourth inning, with Kaisee Perkins hitting a lead-off triple, Haley Bradshaw a double to drive her home, Kennedy Childers a sinlge, and Jacey Valentine an RBI single. The Lady Midgets extended the lead in the fifth inning to 3-1, with a Bradshaw double driving in Perkins from first base.

Trenton put up a two spot in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie the game at 3. Tosha Wilson led things off with a single (her second hit of the game), and was sacrified to second base by McKinley Hurley. That brought senior catcher Madi Trump to the plate:

Down 4-3 in the seventh inning, Trenton hit two line-drives into outs, with Wilson and Capeder hitting into tough luck, leaving McKinley Hurley, who walked, stole second, and moved to third on a wild pitch, stranded at third.

Here is Trenton High School coach John Cowling, speaking of the frustration left by the "atom balls" hit in the Bulldogs seventh:
