Sarah Baynard was strong in the circle for Woodland, holding Carrollton without a hit through four innings, despite three Woodland errors.

The Lady Trojans would go on to score three unearned runs in the frame and two earned runs to take a 5-0 lead.

Carrollton added another run in the top of the sixth and another in the seventh.
