The Lady Trojans, the No. 1 seed from Division 1-5A, entered ranked number one in the state. They showed why they where 25-1 entering the contest as they defeated Oxford 13-0 in five innings to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series. Game 2 is set for tonight in New Hope at 5:30 p.m. A third game, if necessary, would be played 20 minutes after the conclusion of the second game.
