- Location: North Andover, Mass. (Martone-Mejail Field)

- The Lead: No.4 seeded Assumption gave up two runs in the first inning and shut out the Warriors for the remainder of the game, but it was not enough as the Hounds fell 2-0 to No. 3 Merrimack in the first round of the NE10 Tournament on Tuesday evening. 

HOW IT HAPPENED:

-  In the bottom of the first, the Warriors got on the board with two runs as Kristina Terrazzano singled up the middle to score Alyssa Williamson and Nicole Nanof

- In the top of the second, junior Victoria Petrie (Marlborough, Mass./Marlborough) singled with two outs but Merrimack pitcher Megan Cook ended the inning to keep her shut out alive. 

- In the top of the seventh the Hounds had a last chance to come back. Freshman Alyssa Beaton (Smithfield, R.I./Smithfield) singled to right field and then Ally Hinojosa (Revere, Mass./Revere) replaced her one first. Hinojosa took second on a wild pitch but Cook struck out the last batter to end the game 2-0 in favor of the Warriors.
