The Lady Eagles fell behind early as they trailed 1-0 after the first inning, but came back quickly to grab a 2-1 lead in the top of the second when Natalia LeDesma drove in a pair of runs with a single scoring Savanah Ruiz and Amanda Escalera.  The Gauchos evened the score with a run in the bottom of the fourth, but once again MSJC fired right back to grab the lead in the top of the fifth.  In the fifth the Lady Eagles got a couple of RBI singles from Jordan Sage and Kristen Storer to reclaim the lead at 4-2.  Both teams were held scoreless the rest of the way.
