On Senior Night at Kankakee Valley, the host Kougars trailed McCutcheon 7 to 3 heading into the bottom of the seventh inning. KV then ripped six hits to plate 4 runs and send the game into extra innings. Freshman pitcher, Carmen Rosado, relieved starting pitcher, Lexi Broyles, with no outs and a runner on first in the top of the eighth, recording 2 pop-ups and a strike out to end the Maverick threat.

Kaylee Barrett was 3 for 5 on the night, while Dekock also doubled. Senior shortstop, Maddie Swart was 3 for 5 with a pair of stolen bases for the 12 and 9 Kougars.
