|Danielle Gabriel completed the threesweep for the LJs|
The Manhattan Lady Jaspers just beat the Iona Gaels 1-0 at the MAAC Championship in Fairfield to force a winner take all championship game Sunday.
Wow. Manhattan just completed the improbable...a 3 for 3 day! Facing elimination for the third time today, the Lady Jaspers again got fabulous pitching, this time from Danielle Gabrielle. The freshman held the MAAC hitting leaders to just two hits, and was in complete control walking no one while striking out three. Manhattan got the only run they would need in the bottom of the first inning when Elena Bowman sent a pitch sailing far over the right field fence for her 13th homer of the season. Shutdown pitching and solid defense kept Iona from posing a serious threat the rest of the way.
Manhattan and Iona will meet Sunday at 11 am for the championship of the MAAC.
