The Ospreys got on the board in the top of the first with an RBI single to right by Senior Tiffany Lower for an early 1-0 lead.

A two RBI single by Junior Danielle de Ruiter in the bottom of the second put the Lions back on top for a 2-1 lead.

Pfent was penciled in as a pinch hitter in the top of the third with the bases loaded and delivered with a towering fly ball to left that landed for a grand slam and pushed the Ospreys to a 5-2 lead.

Junior Morgan Blourne and Freshman Morgan Clausen were lights out as they combined for two and a third innings of work in relief, holding the Lions scoreless and cemented the 5-2 win over UNA.
