Millsaps ripped off a pair of three goal runs to keep the Petrels at bay. Whitney Smith scored with just 18 seconds left to make in an 11-5 ball game going into the half.

Millsaps would turn on the afterburners in the second half. Goals by JB Page, Iskra and Theresa Woehnker would make it 14-6 and were part of a nine-goal run that put the game into a running clock. The Majors would tack on a few more as Margaret Eggers and Sarah Hawthorne each scored to close out the game and scoring at 23-7.

The Majors now at 8-5 on the year and 4-2 in SAA play, travel to Sewanee for the SAA semifinals and finals. Centre awaits the Majors on Saturday, the Colonels got by Millsaps 11-10 in Danville earlier this year. A game time has not yet been set.
