ELC coach Megan Anderson talked about the change in her team

'We decided we were going to start our season from where it's at, and whatever happened that first week and a half, we're going to have a short-term memory and it's over with," Anderson said. "We're going to focus on getting better every day from here on out. The girls really stepped up and responded tonight. We've talked a lot about attitude and effort every time we step on the field. I think they've really embraced that and showing that they're a very good team. If we show up and play hard every game, we have a chance to win."

On Tuesday, ELC took an early 3-1 lead against the Indians, which included a home run by Lena McCoy. Forest City plated three runs in the third inning to briefly take the lead. However, ELC sent 10 batters to the plate in scoring seven runs in the third inning to take a 10-4 lead. Forest City plated three more runs in the fourth, but ELC shut down the Indians the rest of the way before adding four insurance runs in the sixth inning.

ELC finished with eight hits in the contest. McCoy's home run was her only hit, but she had three RBIs. Maggie White finished 2-4 with two doubles and two RBIs while Kylie Quastad was 2-4 with two RBIs. Gabrielle Paul was 1-2 with two RBIs, Lindsey Jensen was 1-2 and Jadynn Moore was 1-4. Paul pitched all seven innings, giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits with two strikeouts and one walk.
