Eagles Sweep Semi Finals
Husson Softball continued their march toward a 5th straight North Atlantic Conference title after Sweeping University of Maine Farmington and Castleton St. on Friday after noon. The win places them in the conference championship Saturday
Pitching was the story as Husson shut out Farmington 6-0 in game one and blanked Castleton St. 2-0. Becca McCarty pitched 6 shut out innings well only giving up one hit in the victory over Farmington. Amanda Ryan carried the torch for Husson in game two with a complete game shut out and stuck out 9 in a win over Castelton.
Husson got strong performances offensively from Courtney Hill and Breanna Martin who both knocked in 2 runs a piece against Farmington. Game two was a struggle for both teams offensively, but a fielding error by Castleton let Aimee Mortensen score to give the Eagles a one run lead. Husson would tack on one more with a single by Victoria Overlock in the top of the 6th. That would be more then enough because of the stellar pitching of Amanda Ryan
Husson will take on the winner of Castleton St vs Lyndon St at 2 PM Saturday April 27 for the Conference title.
