On March 11, the Lady Red Devils traveled to Gainesville to play the Lady Hurricanes. The Lady Devils had little trouble with the Canes as they took a 14-0 win in five innings on the 10-run rule.
The win, however, was costly for the Lady Devils as starting pitcher Tori Stamper injured her pitching hand on a slide into second base. The injury was mainly to the middle finger of her pitching hand. Still showing some bruising and slight swelling on Monday night, Stamper said her hand was much better.
That night, the Gainesville Lady Hurricanes came to Williston for a rematch with the same Lady Red Devils minus Stamper.
Enter freshman Sarah Dominico taking the mound for the Lady Devils in her first varsity start.
Cassidy McDilva welcomed the freshman starter in the first inning with a two run home run for the Lady Canes as they took a 3-0 lead early in the game.

The Lady Red Devils began to chip away at the Lady Hurricanes in the third inning. Dayna Hunn led off with a double off the center field fence and scored off a single by catcher Leticia Coronado.

The Lady Canes scored one run in both the fourth and fifth inning whil the Lady Red Devils scored 4 runs in the fourth inning including an over the fence homerun by Hunn. Trailing 13-7 going into the sixth inning freshman Dominico seemed to find her place on the mound in her first varsity start. Her speed picked up and she began to sit batters down and the base hits the Canes had earlier were now outs.
The freshman pitcher began to dominate the hitters from the mound and the Lady Red Devils began to turn on the offense led by Rawls and Hunn. Hunn collected her second double in the sixth inning as the Lady Red Devils scored three runs pulling the game to 13-10 after six complete innings.
Holding the Lady Canes scoreless in both the sixth and seventh innings the Lady Red Devils looked as if they were finished in the bottom of the seventh.

Angie Wilcox then drove in Rawls to tie the game at 13-13 sending the game to extra innings.
Freshman Dominico continued to get stronger on the mound for the Lady Red Devils as neither team scored in the eighth inning. Dominico then struck out to batters in the ninth as the Lady Canes left a runner on third base as the third out was made.
Lady Devil Jasilyn Williams led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a single followed by a Childs single. Rawls walked to load the bases. Then it was Wilcox that drove a ball to right field scoring Williams from third base for the Lady Red Devil win 14-13.
