Freshman Becky Zill's 4 for 4 performance helped Niagara dig out of an 8-1 hole to beat Colgate 14-11 in the first of their two games at the Spartan Clash in Norfolk, VA Saturday. The Purple Eagles scored 4 times in the second inning, then 7 times in the third inning, then twice more in the fourth to take control of the game in typical Niagara fashion. Kristin Sito hit a homer in the game, Teresa Healy knocked in 2 runs, and newcomer sophomore Jaclyn Russell knocked in 2 herself. Julie DiMatteo pitched 5 innings to pick up the victory.
In their second game of the day, Niagara found themselves down 2 runs in the fourth inning against Lafayette when they once again rallied beginning with a Kristin Kill RBI single. Kristin Sito completed the comeback with a 2 RBI double to win the game 6-4. Cassie Stone went the distance to improve her record to 2-1. Niagara now stands at 3-4 and returns to action Sunday against the same Lafayette team.
