Leandra Simitovic allowed five runs – four of them earned – on seven hits and two walks in seven strong innings, while also striking out two and Flavia Von Meiss’ RBI-single in the bottom of fifth inning broke a 5-5 tie, as the Challengers topped the Flyers 6-5 in Game 1 of the best-of-three semifinal series.

But the Flyers fought back scoring three runs in the third and they even took the lead, as Melanie Wanner ripped a 2-Run double to deep center field in the top of the fifth. But the Challengers answered right away, as Karen Heimgartner tied the game with a RBI-double before Von Meiss drove in Heimgartner for the winnig run.
