|Husson University||New England College|
At O’Keefe Field in Bangor, Bri Brochu’s infield single capped a wild sixth-inning rally as the Eagles scored the eventual game-winner in their North Atlantic Conference first-round game.
Brochu collected four singles among nine hits for Husson and Tamara Aunchman provided an RBI single. Jen Jones (8-5) worked four innings of one-hit shutout relief to earn the win in the circle. She struck out six with no walks.
Brianna Castellano singled twice for New England College. Debra Mazzeo (7-15) suffered the loss.
Aunchman’s run-scoring hit gave the Eagles a 1-0 lead in the first inning, but the Pilgrims went ahead 2-1 in the third on Alexa Scribner’s two-run single.
Husson countered in the sixth when Jones singled with one out and advanced on Kylie Kennedy’s fielder’s choice and an error. Nicole Andrade walked, before the first run scored on a wild pitch.
One out later, Bri Brochu’s infield single to shortstop plated the go-ahead run.
