McDaniel wins opener at Sweet Briar
The Green Terorr (1-0) plated two runs in the top of the seventh to break a 3-all deadlock with the Vixens (0-3) before having the second game of the scheduled twinbill called after the first inning because of snow and poor field conditions.
Trailing 3-0, Staub and Lauren Wildasin (Thurmont, Md./Catoctin) led off the visitor fifth with back-to-back singles. A Megan Elfert (Finksburg, Md./Westminster) walked loaded the bases before a one-out error allowed both Staub and Wildasin to score, pulling McDaniel within 3-2.
Back-to-back doubles from Kristina Skinner (Westminster, Md./Westminster) and Staub knotted the game at 3-all in the top of the sixth.
Kelli Workmeister (Baltimore, Md./Catholic) led off the seventh with a walk before stealing second and advancing to third on a wild pitch.
With one out, Lauren Fusco (Laurel, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) singled to plate Workmeister before following Workmeister’s path on the bases, stealing second and advancing to third on a wild pitch.
A Beth Ann Fusco (Laurel, Md./St. Vincent Pallotti) sacrifice fly scored her younger sister to set the final margin.
Mattie Witt drew a walk to lead off the second before stealing second and scoring on a Blair Passagaluppi RBI single.
An error and Roshel MacGorman home run in the bottom of the third pushed the lead to 3-0.
Christina Morley (North Wales, Pa./Archbishop Wood) struck out three in the complete-game win in the circle.
The Green Terror returns to action at Bridgewater on Saturday. The first game of the doubleheader begins at 2 p.m.
