Game One: Point 11, Covenant 1

Covenant starter Cori Hilt (0-1) went seven innings, striking out four, but gets the loss for the Lady Scots.
Point's Jordan Edge (2-1) notches the win as she also went the distance allowing one run and striking out seven.

After Point had taken a 1-0 lead in the first inning, the Lady Scots responded with two outs in the fourth inning with a single run. Jenni Jobe doubled and was brought home on a Madison Quirk RBI single to tie the score.

Point grabbed the lead for good on a Kayla Kelosky two-run home run in fifth and the Lady Skyhawks added eight more runs in the seventh.

Jobe and Quirk each had two hits in three at-bats for Covenant, while Chandler Shepherd and Lauren Johns had a hit apiece.

Kelosky went 2-for-4 with four RBIs for Point who also got four RBIs from Amy Goodson.

Game Two: Point 6, Covenant 1


Point used three runs in the first and three more in the fourth to secure a doubleheader sweep with a 6-1 victory.

Point scored three runs on five hits off Covenant starter Grace Hooper in the first inning to grab a 3-0 lead. The Lady Scots answered with a run of their own in the bottom of the first on a single to right field, scoring Morgan Booker, from Jobe to make it 3-1.

Both pitchers settled down after the first inning. The Lady Skyhawks were able to scrape three more runs across in the fourth to take a commanding 6-1 lead.

Hooper (0-2) went four innings and gets the loss. Ellie Groenendyk came on in relief to toss three scoreless innings, surrendering just three hits in the process. Point starter Jessica Hart (1-2) is credited with the win as she went all seven innings.
