This one was a rout from the start thanks to right-hander JJ Gremminger’s pitching and an attack that punished a mistake-filled Seneca team.
Not all runs scored were earned thanks to five mistakes Seneca made in the first two innings.
Oakfield scored two runs late in the first and opened the game with eight runs on six hits in the second.
Oaks first baseman Sydney Newton went 1-3 with two RBIs to lead the way, while wide receiver Vanessa Flury, third baseman Adi Moser and outfielder Alyvia Robinson and Alyssa Morell each hit in a race.
It was more than enough support for Gremminger, who allowed no hits or walks while striking out three strikes in four innings.
Moser sealed the victory with a scoreless workout in the fifth.
