In game one, Ursuline fell behind 5-0 in the top of the first on five hits, three of which never got out of the infield. The Arrows responded with two in the bottom of the first on an RBI-single by Hillary Beachy and an RBI-groundout by Miranda Boggs.
Westminster extended its lead with three more runs in the second, one in the fourth and three more in the fifth. The Arrows managed one run in the bottom of the fifth on a RBI-triple by Lauren Grana, which scored Kristen Roznoski.
In game one, Roznoski and Grana, who hit number one and two in the lineup, combined to go 4-6 with three runs scored and an RBI. The rest of the order went a combined 1-15 with two RBI.
In game two, Seymour pitched Ursuline to the win. Over the first 16 batters no one had recorded a hit, until with one out in the fifth inning Seymour allowed a single to left. At the time, the Arrows held a 3-0 lead, as they scored all three in the first inning.
Three singles, two sacrifices, and one Titan error allowed Roznoski, Boggs, and Grana to score, two of which scored on the Seymour single.
Westminster cut into the lead with a pair of runs in the sixth off of Seymour. However, the Arrows answered with two of their own in the bottom of the sixth.
The Titans made the finish more difficult than Seymour would have wanted, loading the bases with the tying run at first base. However, with two outs Brittany Mascia made a nice play on a wild pitch back to the screen. She turned and flipped it to Seymour, who tagged out the runner coming home from third for the game's final out.
Ursuline recorded six hits, all from different players in game two.
Ursuline will return to action tomorrow on the road against Mount Vernon, before coming home on Friday, April 30 to face Shawnee State to wrap up conference play. The doubleheader on Friday will start at 1:00 p.m.
