Freshman Alyssa Morris had a game-winning RBI-double in game one and finished the contest 2-for-4. Senior Becca Gleason also had a pair of hits in the opener.

Junior Rachael Mack improved her record to 4-8 on the season while sophomore Lacey McDougall came on in relief of Mack to preserve the one-run victory and pick up her first save of the year.

Four players recorded multi-hit performances in game two's 12-run, six-inning triumph with Morris and sophomore Hayley Wade leading the way with three hits apiece. Gleason and sophomore Jessica Seymour added two hits each.

After netting the save in game one, McDougall returned to the circle in game two to register her eighth win of the season while sophomore Brantlea Wood picked up the save in relief.
