Delana Landefeld led off the game with a single to center and advanced to third on a wild pitch and stolen base. An error on a fly ball hit to center by Ava Heath allowed Landefeld to cross home plate with the first run of the night.

Olivia Dumm worked a walk and Makayla Cook then singled to left, loading the sacks full of Mustangs.

Gabby Henry and Sydney Fuller followed with back-to-back singles that chased home Heath and courtesy runner Sophia Henson.
Madison Kearney followed with the big blow of the inning two outs later when she lined a single to center that scored Fuller and Henry.

After the Rockets reached the scoreboard with two runs in their half of the second, Westfall scored its last run of the night in the third when Grace Long led off the inning with a single to center and later scored on a double to left courtesy of Heath.

Westfall’s Ava Heath doubled, drove in a run and scored twice against Wellston.
