Later that afternoon, the Lady Devils lost to their region rivals, the San Juan Lady Broncos, by a score of 16-5 in three innings. San Juan, which scored 11 runs in the second inning alone, had 10 hits during the game, nine of which were singles. The Broncos also walked eight times. Meanwhile, Grand had just five hits during the contest. Corteney Noyes was the losing pitcher.

With Grand’s ace pitcher Tia Shumway taking the mound for the rematch against San Juan, the Red Devils managed to hold the Lady Broncos to one run in seven innings, eventually rolling to a 9-1 victory. Shumway pitched the entire game, allowing just two hits.
The Lady Devils had 14 hits in the final game against San Juan. Raegan Paxman and Anissa Geiser each had a double for Grand, and McKinsey Brewer hit three singles.
