Game One:  UMPI 35 Trinity 0

Junior Katie Patenaude went 5-for-7 with her first collegiate home run and drove in 10 runs, backing up a 2-hitter from freshman hurler Sara Packard to lead the Owls to the lopsided victory in game one.  Packard struck out a career-high 7 and walked no one, while also contributing at the plate with two doubles among her 4 hits.  Packard drove in 3 runs, scored 4 and added a walk in her six official at bats.

Game Two:  UMPI 32 Trinity 1

The Owls imitation of Murder's Row continued in game two, with the Blue & Gold batting around in the first, scoring 8 runs on doubles from Brown, Patenaude and Campbell's second triple on the day.

The 8-spot would not be the most runs the Owls scored in an inning however as the Blue & Gold displayed their talons again in the 3rd, scoring 12 runs. Fueled by 5 walks and a bases clearing triple from third sacker Brown the Owls plated each member of their lineup in the inning.

Not to be outdone by her teammates in the batter's box, Senior Whitney Donovan didn't allow a hit or walk in her 4 innings of work, before being relieved by Allen in the 5th.  Donovan struck out 6.

Brown and Ashley Dube each had 4 hits, with Brown knocking in 6 runs.  Dube stayed hot, going 5-for-5 on the day, with 4 walks and 3 RBI.  Four Owls had 4 RBI on the game-Bell, Donovan, Campbell and Nicole Marucci.  Freshman Marucci had 3 hits and Dani Smith and Allen had 2 hits each.
