The Eagles took game one from Covenant 7-4. Haily McBride got the win on the mound with 9 strikeouts. 3 of those strikeouts were with runners in scoring positions to end the inning. Lilly Dekker had her second pick off of the year, she caught a girl stealing two. The Eagles got the bat on the ball early but didn’t find the gaps till the fourth inning when Lilly Dekker hit a double to deep center field. In the fifth inning, Kaylee Rodenhouse hit a triple up the third base line, bringing in two runs making the score 4-1. Bottom of the 5th, Covenant battled back scoring two more runs. Top of the 7th, Lily Gaastra beat out her grounder to the short stop, then Haily McBride hit her in with a triple to deep right center. Next up, Lilly Dekker hit a single up the middle bringing in McBride. The Eagles final run came in off a hit from Annika Smits.
