Gaels Advance To Championship Saturday

Sarah Jackson threw a one hitter

Iona 9
Marist 0


The Iona Gaels eliminated Marist and advanced out of the losers bracket Friday in Poughkeepsie, NY.

Sarah Jackson breezed through Iona's second game of the day with a 9-0 win over the Red Foxes; she struck out 6 while allowing only one hit. Iona had a big 3rd inning, highlighted by Melanie Gettins' 3 run home run. Katie Jansson doubled home a pair before that, and Iona had a 5-0 lead. Chelsea Sheehan capped off a great Friday by hitting a 3 run homer in the 7th inning.

Iona will now play #1 Fairfield Saturday for the MAAC Championship. They will have to beat the Stags twice to win it all. Marist ends their dream season with a 33-22 season; they won 23 more games than they did in 2010.
