Gallatin, expected to be a top team in the Grand River Conference in 2014, battled Trenton toe-to-toe for five innings, with senior Sara Lin holding down Trenton's offense to just two hits in a shutout effort, while Hooyman shutdown the Gallatin attack, with 10 strikeouts and two-hit softball through five innings.

Trenton broke out of the offensive doldrums in the sixth inning, with freshman third baseman Jayden Roeder leading things off with a single. Senior McKinley Hurley followed with a single to leave two on and no out. After a failed sacrifice bunt retired Roeder at third, the Lady Bulldogs decided to use their legs to give their rally some juice:

Richman came home immediately thereafter for a 2-0 advantage:

It appeared Gallatin would escape the frame only down two after a Lexie Tolson fly-out, but Ally Ockenfels reached via an error, extending the inning for Megan Lynch, who blooped an RBI single to score Otto. Mallory Hooyman then stepped to the plate:

Trenton added two more runs in the seventh, with the bench coming through with quality at-bats. Maggie McNabb scored one of the runs, with Tenna Roberts gaining the other. Gallatin broke the shutout bid of Hooyman with two runs in the bottom of the seventh, as an Aubrey Burns double scored Kelsie Huggins, and Burns scored on a Trenton throwing error, the only miscue of the night for the Trenton defense. Gallatin commited seven errors. Hooyman got the win, in a complete game five hitter, striking out 12 batters.

Trenton Head Coach John Cowling said the offensive balance of his team should be a strength all season long:
