The MSJC softball team picked up a 4-1 win at San Diego City on Friday in a Pacific Coast Athletic Conference contest.

The Lady Eagles snapped a five game losing streak with a strong pitching performance from Sierra Falcon who threw a complete game allowing just one unearned run on the day.  Falcon struck out 5 while allowing just 3 hits and walking 4.  Falcon also helped on offense as she drove in the first run of the game with a sacrifice fly in the top of the first inning scoring Ashley Brown.

MSJC pushed their lead to 3-0 in the fourth when Marissa Morales singled home Jazmin Albizures and Angie Lopez drove in Maegan Rowley.  The Lady Eagles would extend the lead to 4-0 in the fifth when Nicole Stressling scored an unearned run.  The Knights only run of the game would come in the bottom of the 7th to break up the shut out.
