A mercy ruling brought the game to a close after six innings leaving the final score at 10-0 for the Hawks.
Abigail Hill, Bonnie Gillingham and Elisa Gregoris of the Hawks each had a fantastic first game scoring two runs each. Humber's pitcher, Myranda Pierson also played a good game despite cold temperatures making it difficult to control and grip the ball.
The first pitch for the second game was thrown promptly at 3:00pm. Humber pulled out to an early lead with Terah Camilleri, Natalie Stoberman, Julia Catalano and Meaghan Murphy each scoring a run during the bottom of the second.
