Senior Liz VanderLinden hit two triples and three RBI in the second game.
The Cougars are led BYU Keohohou, who has 13 home runs and leads the team in batting average (.462) and slugging percentage (1.077). Captain Brooke Cadiente leads the team in RBI with 30. Fallowfield leads the team in wins (10) while freshman Niki Andersen leads the team in ERA (3.57)
