The Owls needed extra innings to wrestle game one from the Falcons, as freshman Carly Bell came up with the clutch hit to knock in the eventual winning run. 

With the game tied 4-4, Jessica Campbell and Amanda Allen were in scoring position and Campbell scored on a hard hit by Ashley Dube that the Falcon second baseman fumbled. Bell next singled to center scoring Allen and Dube to give the Owls a 7-4 lead.
