Glass, Jada McIntosh, Tori Blackbourn, Robinson and Phillips each had a double.
Blackbourn and Avery McCullough each scored two runs to lead the team. McIntosh, Blackbourn and McCullough each had two hits for LHS, which scored three runs in the top of the third and then broke a 3-3 tie with two runs in the top of the sixth.
