Against the Titans, Emmetsburg would fall in the tournament opener by a 4-0 tally. GT/RA would score a run in the first inning as Toni Alesch scored off an RBI single from Chloe Bakken after bunting her way on base. Emmetsburg would leave two runners on base in their half of the inning.

The two squads would trade outs through the next three innings, but in the top of the fifth, Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire started out with a base hit from Emily Chicoine another bunt from Toni Alesch, who was followed on base by Madison Norris off an error. A walk to Taylor Park loaded the bases before a base hit from Chloe Bakken scored Chicoine, Alesch and Norris' runs before leaving Bakken waiting when the at-bat ended.
