Game 1

Saint Peter's started Crystal Carlucci who pitched a complete game shutout, going all seven innings while only allowing five hits and striking out three.

Saint Peter's game winning run came in the top of the fifth when Nicole Feoli hit an RBI single, scoring Shamar Sanchez. The team finished the game with four hits.

After being shutout in game one, Quinnipiac struck early as they scored a run in the bottom of the first, leading the Peacocks 1-0. Saint Peter's responded, as Carlucci singled, bringing home Samantha Storms. Schieler Collins singled to left field advancing her to second base while making way for Carlucci to score to go-ahead run. The Peacocks ended the second leading the Bobcats 2-1.

The Bobcats held the Peacocks at two as they scored two runs in the bottom of second, four runs in the bottom of third and one more run in the bottom of fourth. Taking the second game 8-2.

"With continued contribution throughout the entire lineup, this Peacock team has a lot of potential to do some damage in the MAAC," said Stelma.
