A seven-run second inning set the tone for game two after Elmhurst scored one run in the top of the first inning. Judson opened the flood gates in the second and never looked back. They added five more runs in the fourth for the 12-1 win. Secor went four innings for the win with one strikeout and then Sarah Boyer worked the fifth with one strikeout and no hits.

Hallie Niewold gave Judson one RBI.

Stankus started off the second inning with a short shot over the left field fence for her second home run of the year to tie the game at one. Four batters later, with the bases loaded, Niewold walked to give Judson the 2-1 lead. After a double play, Dimiceli singled up the middle for two RBI. Catlett followed with a three-run dinger to left centerfield to finish out the seven runs.

In the fourth inning, Dimiceli brought in the first run with a single through the right side. Catlett then singled to centerfield to score two more runs and Stankus grounded out as Dimiceli scored for the 11th run of the game. The 12th run came in when Sensor was thrown out on an attempt to let Catlett come in from third. The attempt worked as Judson went up 12-1.
