A steal of home by Sophomore catcher Brooke Reasoner extended the Wolves lead to four in the top of the second. Four more Wolves crossed the plate in the fourth inning to extend the lead to 8-2. In addition to Mehta's two-run homerun, Junior Izzy Dunn scored on a wild pitch and Sophomore Abby Jennings singled to drive in Sophomore Abby Cuellar.
