Through 2 innings the Phins trailed 6-1, but turned the game around with a big 6 run 3rd inning to take a lead they would not relinquish. The Phins tacked on 4 more runs to come away with an 11-9 victory. Shelby Reyes led the Phins  going 3 for 4 from the plate with 5 RBIs, a double, and a home run. Kathryn Goff struck out 5 batters in her complete game victory and added power from the plate with a home run and 3 RBIs.

In game 2 the Phins took on Centralia from the West Region. The Phins could never quite get any offense going striking out 12 times as a team and only getting 5 hits in the game. Sarah Casel went 2-3 and got her 2nd stolen base of the year, but this was the lone highlight for the Phins. Shoreline dropped the game 0-9.
