Concordia cruises to sweep of College of St. Mary

Concordia University picked up a pair of easy softball wins over the College of Saint Mary on Monday afternoon in Omaha.  Scores were 15-3 and 16-0.  The Bulldogs improved to 12-6 on the season with the victories.  College of St. Mary dropped to 0-16 with the losses.   

Concordia finished with 13 hits in game one.  The Bulldogs scored in four of the five innings and did most of their damage in the first and fourth innings.  Concordia scored five runs in the top of the first and added six more runs in the fourth.

Amanda Beeson (Waverly, Neb.) had a solid game at bat and on the mound for Concordia.  Beeson was 2-for-3 with two RBI’s and two runs scored.  She also moved to 3-2 on the year with the win on the mound.  Beeson worked the first three innings, allowing no hits with five strikeouts. 

Nicole Mapes (Greeley, Colo.) was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with an RBI and three runs scored.  Mikaela Klein (Grand Island, Neb.) was 2-for-4 with a homer, three runs scored and four RBI’s.  Alyssa Bauwens (Perryville, Mo.) was 3-for-4 with a homer, a run scored and four RBI’s in a balanced Concordia offensive attack.

The Concordia bats stayed hot in game two, as the Bulldogs scored the 16 runs on 11 hits.  Concordia again scored in four of the five innings and put eight runs on the board in the fourth inning alone. 

Clarissa Eloge (Rising City, Neb.) was a perfect 3-for-3 with an RBI and four runs scored.  Bauwens was 1-for-3 with her second homer of the day.  Sam LaFontaine (Hermantown, Minn.) was 2-for-4 with a homer, two runs scored and four driven in.  Pitcher Elizabeth Young (Grand Prairie, Texas) was 2-for-2 with a run scored and two RBI’s.  On the mound, Young (3-2) worked all five innings and allowed just four hits with one walk and six strikeouts.
