Busdeker finished with two hits and an RBI, while Ella Mitchell and Maddy Thompson added two hits each.

Sayler and Ohlman each finished with a hit and two RBI, Marsik a hit and RBI, and Andrea Gauthier a hit and run scored.

The Dreads used a big four run third inning to take control of the second game and cruised to an 8-1 win for the sweep.

Ohlman started the inning with an RBI single and Mitchell followed with a two-run single to make it 5-0.

Mitchell would drive in two more runs in the fifth with a single and Morgan Sturmer doubled home a run to make the final 8-1.
