In the fifth inning, Konnor Sudmann and Alyssa Kellar singled to set the stage for Huisman’s two-run, go-ahead single. Bella Dingus added an RBI single for a 7-5 lead.
Huisman finished 2-for-3 with five RBIs, while Sudmann and Kellar added two hits each and Stella Umphreys had an RBI. Huisman struck out eight and walked five, finishing the game with a strikeout.
