Schut shut out the Knights after allowing a first-inning unearned run, striking out two and walking two to get the win in the circle.

Ariana Mathews was 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI, Kylie Small was 2-for-4 and Brooklynn Bockhaus had a double, scored three runs and drove in two for Haughton, who improved to 14-10. Averi Phillips also had a double and drove in two runs and Ella Vickers drove in two runs.
