SCORE

College of Saint Mary def. Dordt 3-1

HOW IT HAPPENED

College of Saint Mary earned the sweep in Saturday's doubleheader against Dordt, as the Defenders dropped game two by a score of 3-1.

Dordt had an opportunity early on as Karli Olsen drew a one-out walk in the bottom of the 1st and was later advanced to third after Chandler Schemper's base hit and a fielder's choice. With two runners in scoring position, however, the Flames forced a groundout to end the inning.

The Flames scored first in the 2nd as Macy Homes hit a double to right center before a walk and a single loaded the bases. Marissa McGargill then drew a walk to allow the first run to come home. Later in the inning, Rylee Scholl was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to make the score 2-0.

The Defenders made a dent in the Flames' lead in the bottom half of the 2nd when Kenzie Cunard reached on an error that allowed Hailey Wilken to cross home plate and make the score 2-1.

College of Saint Mary went on to increase their lead on Garcia's RBI single in the 3rd, going up 3-1.

Dordt left runners on second base in both the 6th and 7th innings but was unable to score as the Flames left with the win.
