A leadoff double by Sarah Carassco in the fourth inning was followed by an RBI single from Tupua-Tautalatasi to give Long Beach State the lead. A two-RBI double from Lauren Lombardi gave the 49ers a 6-3 lead.
With two outs in the seventh inning, an error scoring a two runs threatened the lead, but Amanda Hansen was able to collect a final groundout to finish off a complete game victory.
