The Gulls added two more runs in the second frame, highlighted by a triple from Gina DeMilt (Princeton, N.J.) and a single from Hopgood. 

Nichols responded with several hits in the bottom of the second in order to cut the deficit to 3-1. 

Endicott exploded for four runs in the fourth inning on a sacrifice fly from Favreau and a three-RBI triple from Peyton Atkins (Goshen, N.Y.) before Nichols' Taylor Commesso (Hingham, Mass.) ripped a solo home run to left field to make it a 7-2 game. 

The Gulls saw one run in the fifth and three tallies in the seventh, and then shut down the Bison offense the rest of the way to secure the 11-2 win.
