    The Golden Eagles got another strong pitching performance from junior Paige Schaust (Delano, Minn.) in game one. Schaust went six innings and got the win last Thursday against Bemidji State. Schaust would go six innings, giving up three runs, two of them earned, on six hits. However, she would suffer the loss in the game to fall to 1-5 on the season.
     
    Junior Ashley Manusos (OF/IF, Spring Grove, Ill.), sophomore Courtney Bridge (SS, Port Coquitlam, British Columbia) and Schaust would combine for three hits for UMC in game one. Erickson led Minnesota State going 2-for-3 with one run batted in for game one.
     
    Senior Stacey Marcum (Merrill, Wis.) got the start in game two against the Mavericks and would suffer the loss in the 19-0 game as she pitched  2 2/3 innings, giving up 14 runs, ten of them earned, on 11 hits.
     
    Marcum would allow six runs to cross in the bottom of the third to make the tally 14-0. Sophomore Brooke Vatthauer (P/1B, Crookston, Minn.) would get the final out of the inning as she replaced Marcum.
     
    Vatthauer would give up five runs in the bottom of the fourth to the Mavericks before being relieved by junior Cateline Fafard (Dauphin, Manitoba).
     
    Brittany Lauterbach would get the game two victory for Minnesota State after going four innings and giving up just two hits and no earned runs with five strikeouts.
