Spring-Ford 3, Owen J. Roberts 0 >> A pitchers duel finally gave way in the sixth inning as Julia Heine delivered a key two-run double to deep center field to lead the Rams to a victory over their Liberty Division opponent.
Heine’s double provided enough run support for pitcher Sam Lindsay, who was sensational yet again in the circle. The righty allowed only one hit while striking out five and walking one. She went toe-to-toe with Owen J. Roberts’ Brittney Dellaquila as the game remained scoreless through five innings.

But in the sixth, the Rams did damage. Maggie McConney reached on a leadoff single before Sophia Cinti reached on a bunt single. With runners on second and third, Heine belted a deep blast to the center-field fence for a two-run double before being knocked in by a Lindsay single up the middle. Lindsay worked 1-2-3 innings the next two frames to secure the win for the undefeated Rams.
