No. 9 Luther capped off a busy three-game day with an 11-2 victory over UW-Stevens Point. This game was a make-up from March 11 when the two teams faced each other in Greenville, Ill., and were able to get game one of two played before weather shut the door on game two.
The Norse exploded for 17 hits and put crooked numbers on the scoreboard in the fourth, fifth and seven innings. Sierra Freeland, Natalie Stockman, Addy Pender, Annie See and Megan Bonnett all drove in two runs. Bonnett led the offensive attack going 4-for-4. Stockman, See, Ashley Burrows, Anna Strien and Blake Banowetz were all credited with two hits.
Samantha Bratland went the distance in the circle en route to her seventh win against just one loss. Bratland allowed two runs on four hits, walked two and struck out one.
The win was the ninth in a row for the Norse who will have tomorrow off. On Wednesday the 28th, Luther will resume action with games against the College of Mount Saint Vincent (NY) and Thomas College (ME).
