Fruita led 3-1 heading into the third inning but several errors by the Fruita allowed Shaw Heights to tie the game 3-3.

In the bottom of the fourth the tie was broken when Shania Marchun drove in Kierra Hall, putting fruita back on top 4-3. From there Fruita added three more runs and gave up two,winning 7-5. Both teams now have a loss and that forces a clinching game Wednesday afternoon.
