Hot bats are just what Coach Wallach ordered up from the Falcons (9-13) as they headed to Lebanon, MO for a neutral site double header against North Arkansas College. ECC met the Pioneers close to halfway between the two schools to match up with the out of state opponent. The Falcons swept NAC in the double header by scores of 15-7 and 21-4. ECC launched hits early and often in both games. In the first game, Mallory Feldewerth paved the way going 4 for 5 collecting two doubles and a home run along with 6 RBI. On the defensive side, Maya Street kept the Pioneers scoreless for four innings. She helped herself out by smacking a home run of her own and collected 4 RBI.
The second game of the two game slate saw ECC hit the launch button right from the beginning. The Falcons were 12-0 after the first three innings. A massive tally of nine runs in the 4th inning put the game way out of reach as it ended after 5 innings. Katie Gaus led the offense with 3 hits and 4 RBI. Seeley Friend also put the ball into play often with three hits and three RBI. Defensively, Madeline Webb and Mackenzie Altenthal combined to seal the victory pitching. Webb got credited with the win.
