The Maroons were not able to conquer their second opponent however, as they fell to the Bethlehem Banshees by once again a score of 6-4. The Maroons were led by Rilee Ross in the loss, as she finished with two RBI's on three hits. Hamilton and Thomas each added one RBI apiece, with Ryann Sowder finishing with three hits and a double and both Ellis and Carroll also earning a hit apiece.
