Marquette and Norway both dropped their final pool play game to end their seasons. Norway fell 18-9 to Alpena Huron Shores and Marquette lost 12-8 to Bay County.
ESCANABA 4 vs. HUDSONVILLE 3--- Kinsley Williams was the catalyst at the plate Escanaba going 3-3 with two doubles while driving in one run and scoring three including the eventual game winner.
Going into the sixth inning the game was tied at two. Izzy Perryman reached on an error to start the inning. Williams stepped up and doubled to left field for her third hit of the game. Perryman scored from second base to give Escanaba the lead.
Gabby Parlato hit a hard ground ball and reached on an error that allowed Williams to score to make it 4-2.
Hudsonville would not go quietly with their season on the line in the bottom of the inning. Izzy Willimore singled up the middle with one out. Brinley Vanstedurn reached on an error that allowed the run to score to bring Hudsonville within one.
Jessica Fox singled and Vanstedurn tried to score from second base when the relay throw got her out at home to preserve the Escanaba lead. Braelyn Grandchamp got the next batter to groundout to end the game.
Grandchamp pitched a complete game allowing three runs, all unearned, on seven hits while walking one and striking out four.

Bay County scored one run in the third and fourth innings while Marquette put two across in both to take a 8-5 lead. Bay County scored seven runs in the fifth and sixth innings to complete the comeback and secure the victory.
