Coho and Homers Lead Saints to playoff Victory

The Saints middle of the lineup paced an offensive attack while Kiersten Coho pitched a gem to lead the Saints to victory over Monroe College Saturday afternoon in the first game of the Region Tournament. 

Lauren Nickerson homered in the second inning to put the Saints on the scoreboard first. Monroe took the lead 2-1 and the score remained that way until the fourth inning. 

Kim Burdett and Nickerson hit back-to-back home runs to give the Saints the lead. In the fifth, the Saints extended that lead to 5-1 when Julia Lang and Burdett both doubled to score a run. 

Mercyhurst put the game away with a four-run sixth inning, Burdett's two run single was the big blow of the inning. 

Burdett finished with three hits and four RBIs while teammates Nickerson and Emily Foy each had three hits. 

Coho struck out six and walked just one to earn the complete game victory.
