Enfield's Casi Delorge drove in the first run with a double to left center field and later scored to stake the West to an early advantage. The East answered with Vernon's Sarah Silver scoring a run in the bottom of the inning team, but a four-run fourth inning put the West ahead to stay.

In the High School Division nightcap, the West Division all-stars prevailed by a score of 2 to 1 in one of the most exciting and best-played all-star games in the league's history. The East Division stars struck early, with a run in the opening inning off Jill Petraitis (Canton) on an RBI-single by Hebron's Meg Holmes, scoring Lauren Silver (Vernon). Vernon's Shannon Turgeon, who pitched a complete game, held the West in check until the fifth inning, when Simsbury's Taryn Braz scored to tie the game on a RBI-single by Gillian Flynn (Windsor I). The game remained in a 1-1 deadlock until the bottom of the seventh inning, when Katelyn Corr (Windsor II) reached base on a one-out bunt single and scored the deciding run on a single by Gillian Flynn. Braz earned the win, pitching the final four innings for the West team, allowing just two hits and striking out five. Lina Nguyen (Vernon) and Hannah Vinone (Coventry) also had hits for the East team, as did Monica Swartley (Northwest) and Drew Martin (Windsor I) for the West.
