The Tornadoes scored eight of their runs with two outs. After the first two batters were set down in the 1st inning, the next seven reached base, and RBI singles by Taylor Ripke and Lillie Hoffman helped Storm Lake to a 4-0 lead.

Storm Lake scored four in the 3rd, including an RBI groundout by Maddy Raveling, and a solo homerun by Josie Hernandez. A four-run 5th featured an RBI single by Ripke, and bases loaded walks to Hoffman and Abby Bodholdt.
