HOW IT HAPPNED:

- Roy coaxed three flyouts to make quick work of Saint Michael's in the top of the second, before the Hounds plated two more runs in the bottom half of the inning to extend their lead to 3-0. Junior Stephanie Menard (Cranston, R.I./ Cranston HS West) homered to left field and Cassie Schultz (Amesbury, Mass/Amesbury) walked, advancing to second after Victoria Petrie (Malborough, Mass/Malborough) hit a single up the middle and came around to score on a fielding error. 

- In the bottom of the fifth the Hounds scored their last two runs. With the bases loaded, Petrie hit a double to drive in Ashley Abad (Bedford, N.H. / Bedford) and Schultz to end the game 5-0.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS: 

- In game one, Kendal Roy (Grafton, Mass./Grafton) pitched a complete game registering three strikeouts and did not allow a run. Petrie led the offense with a double and two RBI, while Clark tripled and Menard homered.
