Saturday, April 4th:
Game 1: LC 7- DACC 3
Lincoln College continued to pound out the hits Saturday in Danville. Coach Wurth said, “We started off a little slow the first game. We scored early in the game and then added 2 security runs in the top of the 5th inning. We had 4 innings that we did not score and it was unsettling, the girl were hitting the ball, getting on base but unable to drive the runs in like we did the day before. Danville strung together a few hits and were always putting pressure on our defense. DACC scored 3 runs in the first inning but then were unable to score for the remainder of the game. LC Won 7-3.”
