Game 1
Judson 8, Calumet 6

Judson scored in five of the six innings played as they held onto an 8-6 win over Calumet. Gladen went five innings for the win while Sarah Boyer earned her first save of the year going the final two innings. Gladen, Nicole Dimiceli, and Emily England all had two hits while England and Gladen provided two RBI. Amanda Hart, Erin Stankus, and Hallie Niewold each had a RBI, too.

After Calumet took a 2-0 lead to start the game, Judson put three on the board in the bottom of the inning. England sacrificed her first at-bat with a fly ball to right field as Concetta Lampugnano came in. Gladen then stepped to the plate and swatted her first home run of the year to give Judson the lead, 3-2. Calumet tied the game at three in the top of the second and Judson answered right back in the bottom of the inning for a 4-3 advantage. Hart tripled down the right field line with two outs as Niewold scored from first base.

Stankus provided a sacrifice fly in the third inning for the fifth run of the game as Gladen scored and then Sensor came in on a throw to second base when Holm was stealing. Judson had one run in the fourth on an England double to make it 7-3. Calumet made things interesting with two runs in the fifth to come within two, 75. Judson made it a three-run game in the bottom of the fifth when Niewold tripled down the right field line to score Stankus. Calumet did add one more run in the top of the seventh but that is as close as they came, 8-6.
Game 2
Calumet 4, Judson 0

Judson could not find the ball in game two with only five hits. Sensor led Judson with three of the five hits. Calumet scored one run in the second, third, fifth, and seventh innings for the four run lead. Katie Talbot received the loss going 2.1 innings with two walks and two strikeouts.
