Kendra Yearick was on the mound for the Huskies during the seven-inning shutout and tallied up eight strikeouts, only allowed one base on balls, and more impressively, only surrendered two hits throughout the game to claim the victory. Tealisha Boyd, the Golden Eagles starting pitcher endured the tough game and had a solid performance despite the lopsided score. Boyd retired eight Huskies on strikes, and only allowed two Husky batters to reach base on balls. Boyd however surrendered eleven hits in the seven-inning affair.
Offensively for Ashe, a host of Huskies performed admirable in the game. Brittany Parsons, Cory Revis, and Kim McNeil each claimed two hits. McNeil went two for three in the game, and Parsons and Revis each went two for four. Parsons recorded a triple, a double, one run batted in, and also scored one run herself. Revis had a double, an RBI, and also scored a run. Kaitlin Smith went one for three, with one RBI, and also a run, and Annie Hegar also went one for three with a run.
The Huskies opened up the abundant scoring against the Golden Eagles in the first inning when Brittany Parson reached base with a double. Cori Revis then drove Parson in with another double to score Ashe’s first run in their six run first inning. A run scored in the fourth inning, then the final run of the game for Ashe was scored in the fifth to finalize the scoring at 8-0.
