Juniors Brianna Fulkerson, Alysha Poteat, and Nicole Reed recorded the three hits for the Lions as Fulkerson was scored in the bottom of the first inning on a double by Poteat.  Nicole Reed singled to center, freshman Madison Reed then came in to run and stole second base and advanced to third on a wild pitch then scored the winning run on a second wild pitch of the inning.

Game Two

The nightcap saw Southern's bats come alive recording 10 hits and scoring seven runs on the RiverHawks.

Junior Breanna Volkmann led the way for the Lions as she went 3-for-4 at the plate while scoring three runs and recording a RBI.  Nicole Reed batted in five runs and senior Lauren Hasty picked up the final RBI.
