The game was scoreless through two, but TU allowed RC Tars to break through in the third to hang four runs on the board. Talia Kentoffio, crossed home plate on a Jordan Davis bunt single. Chandler Middlebrook then doubled, tallying two RBI as Davis and Abigail Sexton both scored.
Senior Brianne Lint capped the frame by scoring Middlebrook with an RBI single. The Tars would score in each of the next two frames with Davis and Amanda Guglietta each scoring. Guglietta tallied her first run of 2018 on Kentoffio's first collegiate RBI.
At the end of five Rollins held a 6-1 advantage. Abby Summer retired the side in order in the sixth, and the Tars offense did the rest. Middlebrook, Lint and Whitney Foyer each earned RBI as the Tars putting the game away.
