Third baseman Hayley Lalor started the rally in the fifth with Alberta trailing 2-0. She singled and came around to score the first run of the six-run inning.

B.C. scored once in the sixth and three times in the seventh to tie the game at six, setting up a dramatic finish in the bottom half.

Ellie Jespersen walked to start the seventh, then Madison Willan was hit by a pitch. Kelsey singled to left and set up a Haylee Sidor sac-fly to win the game for Alberta.

Hayley continued to roll in 10-9 walk off win over the Prospects. She had three hits including a walk off single in the victory, while Kelsey pitches two and two thirds innings with three strikeouts.
