Bailey Dowling started things off in the first inning with an RBI groundout to put a run on the board for the Tide. Freshman Marlie Giles brought home Kali Heivilin on a sac fly RBI to make the score 2-0 in the second inning. Giles struck again in the fourth inning as she hit an RBI single into left field to bring home Ally Shipman from second base, making the score 3-0.

The Tide finally blew its fall ball shutout streak in the top of the fifth inning when Emory put up a run with an RBI single. Alabama answered back with a dominant sixth inning as Kat Grill, Jordan Stephens, and Emma Broadfoot all brought runners home to increase the Tide's lead to 7-1. M'Kay Gidley stole home from third in the seventh inning to make the score 8-1.

The Crimson Tide decided to play ten innings with Fouts in the circle for the remainder of the game. Stephens scored again in the eighth inning with an RBI single alongside another RBI single from Abby Duchscherer to make it a 10-1 game. The last points in the game were scored in the ninth inning when Broadfoot and Duchscherer each put up two runs to make the final score 14-1.

Head coach Patrick Murphy made a statement regarding his team's overall performance for the fall.

"I really liked the baserunning this fall. We have a lot of good team speed in people like Larissa Preuitt and Kristen White. Kali Heivilin was great on the basepaths. Our team defense will be really good. We have some great athletes everywhere; that will be a big key. Players like Lauren Esman who can pitch but can also play first base or outfield and we won't miss a beat with her out there."

Alabama softball's regular season kicks off in February.
