St. Joseph's scored early and often in game one and posted a five-spot in the first inning, beginning with a Kristen Arbiter (2-for-4) RBI double.

Up 6-0 in the top of the third, SJC tacked on three more runs via a Madeline Sganga (2-for-2) RBI single, a Yeshiva error and an Arbiter RBI single to short.

Ashley Accardi's (1-for-1) two-run homer in the top of the fifth capped the guests' scoring, and in the bottom of the fifth Yeshiva posted its only run of the game when Ellsa Alwels doubled to left center.

SJC totaled 15 hits in the contest and were paced by multi-hit performers Ashley Steponaitis (2-for-3), Elizabeth Rohme (2-for-3), Valerie Scura (2-for-3), Sganga and Arbiter.

Nicole Baron (1-0) was handed the start for the Golden Eagles and fanned four batters in four innings of work. Ashley Blydenburgh provided relief and struck out two in the fifth.

Three more runs in the third made way for Samantha Magerovich (3-for-4) to homer in the top of the fifth prior to Elise Grau's (3-for-4) RBI double to right field which wrapped SJC's scoring for the evening.
