The Viqueens were not deterred and came back to tie the game at 2-2 in the bottom of the inning as Taylar Wessner delivered a two-out, two-run double.
Community took a 3-2 in the second inning as Chloe West raced home with the go-ahead run after a Lady Rocket throw to second failed to nab a Viqueen base runner.
Forrest tied the game at 3-3 in the fourth inning as a Viqueen error on a bunt brought home Jenna Goodman.
The Lady Rockets broke out of the tie with four runs and some clutch two-out hitting in the fifth.

A Parker Wales single gave Forrest its final run of the inning and a 7-3 lead.
