Today was the last pair of regular season home games for a couple of Chargers. The four players were seniors, Brandy Dianno, Meghan Charmoff, Brooke Fisher and Lindsey Couturier. All four players ended their careers on a high note with a solid afternoon.
Game one had sophomore Victoria Cabral on the mound and in control from start to finish, keeping Dominican in check, not allowing a run the entire game.
In the bottom of the second inning, Dianno hit a one-out triple to center and was brought home by junior Jess Spivey later in the inning.
Freshman Gabby DeLeo had a fantastic game one, scoring sophomore Jen Palase in the second inning, and hitting a solo shot homerun in the fifth to give New Haven a 3-0 lead.
Later in the fifth, Couturier doubled to left center scoring Dianno and giving the Chargers a 4-0 lead, and the overall final score; UNH taking game one easily.
Game two had sophomore Nicole King on the mound for the New Haven, and gave all four seniors a solid game to round off a couple of great careers.
Fisher reached on a single and was brought home by Cabral to take a 1-0 lead. Later with two on, Couturier hit a monstrous home run to right-center field scoring Dianno and Devline, taking a 4-0 lead.
That homerun was Couturier’s eleventh on the season, putting her one shy of tying the conference record.
In the fourth, Dianno scored two runs off a single to right, giving UNH a 6-0 lead.
King allowed one run in the fifth and sixth inning respectively, but secured the win in the seventh. The final score was 6-2, New Haven.
UNH secured the southwest division in the NE-10 and will host the NE-10 postseason tournament.Tweet
