At the end of two complete innings, Paupack was in command 5-2.
In the third, the Lady Bucks scored once again, this time on a homerun from Maddie Cuomo who launched a shot to the fence in left to make it 6-3.
One inning later, Paupack would pad its lead when Alicia Brindle led off with a single, stole second, and was brought home on an RBI single from Katie Weist.
In the fifth, the girls in Purple scored one more time to make it 8-3 when Lauren Ingulli led off with a stand-up triple and scored on an RBI from Cuomo.
