Diamond Girls Advance

Northwestern's Softball Team needed to win 2 games as they advanced from the "consolation" bracket to beat the Irish 4-1 and 4-3 in South Bend Sunday.

In Game One...
Eileen Canney pitched a complete game 2 hitter, allowing just one run to score for Notre Dame. Canney also struck out 4 in the game, against 1 walk.

In the Second Game, Courtnay Foster started, and pitched 4 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits, but gave way to Canney, who returned to the circle to finish out the game. Canney gave up one hit, a 6th inning solo homerun by Notre Dame's catcher, Mallorie Lenn.

She also loaded the bases in the top of the 7th, with 2 outs, but got Liz Hartmann to ground out to short, ending the game and allowing the Cats to advance to the Super Sectional.

More info in the morning.
