The Aggies had six hits in game one with Julie Cross going a perfect three-for-three at the plate and Kari Fry with three hits on two at-bats. Pitcher Kendra Wellnitz took the loss, scattering seven hits and getting two strikeouts in three innings on the mound.

Aggie bats worked well in the second game as they women scored nine runs off 11 hits, but the Cowgirl hitting was even better as four Aggie pitchers gave up 20 hits. Dezyrae Arredondo was two for three at the plate and earned three RBIs and Juuna'e Dai'Re had two RBIs. Pitcher Kayla Pollard took the loss.
