Haley Primrose threw a gem in the circle in the opening game, striking out 14 Lady Eagles – including the first nine batters she faced – to earn the win. Alyssa Collazo doubled in the bottom of the sixth inning and came around to score the eventual game winner on an RBI single from Taylor Hartsell.

The nightcap was just as nerve-wracking, but AC’s Bailey Frenzel helped ease the pressure with a pair of two-run homers – one in the first inning, and another in the third. With the game tied at 4-4 in the bottom of the sixth, Lace Tangianau put the Lady ‘Runners on top to stay with a long solo shot over the wall in left for the game-winning RBI.
