Patterson scored nine runs in the first inning, including a grand slam by Arianna Ross.
The Lumberjills added three more runs each in the second and third innings.
Loreauville scored all of their runs in the third inning.

Other top contributors for the Lumberjills included Rachel Easley, 2-for-3, two doubles and two RBIs; and Rebecca Taylor, 3-for-3 with an RBI.
“We got off to a fast start,” Patterson coach Colby Minton said. “Arianna Ross jump started our first inning. I thought we played well on defense, but there is still a lot that we have to improve on.”
