CLERMONT, Fla. – The Thomas College softball team earned two victories on Sunday with a 6-3 extra innings win over Loras and a 5-2 win over Mount Mary at Legends Way Ballfields.

Game 1: Thomas 6, Loras 3 – 8 innings

Each team pushed across a run in the first inning with Lexi Colpack (Franklin, N.H.) scoring on a passed ball for Thomas and Shannon Coyle hitting a sacrifice fly for Loras.

The Terriers took the lead as they tallied a run in the third and fourth on RBI singles from Kayla Bess (Madison, Maine) and Lauren Farina (Schenectady, N.Y.) to make it 3-1.  The Duhawks rallied back with runs in the fourth and sixth to tie the game up at 3-3 to force extra innings.

In extras, Thomas plated three runs on an RBI single by Julia Nadeau (Randolph, Maine) and a two-RBI single from Colpack.  Terrier pitcher Sydney LeBourveau (Jericho, Vt.) shut down the Duhawks in the home half of the inning to preserve the 6-3 win.

Emma Corkill was given the loss for Loras, scattering 13 hits and five runs (three earned).

Game 2: Thomas 5, Mount Mary 2
