In the first game the Bobcats (23-21, 10-4 NEC) were down 3-0 with two innings left to play. But the Bobcats tied in the game in the sixth.

Salgado and Casella combined again to win the game. With two outs in the seventh, Salgado reached on a bunt single and advanced to third on an error. Casella followed with a blooped a single to center to win the game 4-3.
In the second game, the Bobcats again fell behind early but the offense came alive to come away with the win.
Schwartzburg gave up the Seahawks only run in the first and that was all she would allow.

A sacrifice fly from Kim Brzezinski brought in the Bobcats third run in the third inning.
