Katie Ryan sparked the offensive outburst for the Bobcats with four hits, and Parker Ray, Jayla Quick, Olivia Harrison, and Sydnee Poliquin each added big hits.
Alyssa Rose was strong in the circle for Bluffton, striking out seven, walking two, and allowing just one earned run in a five-inning complete game.
