In the fifth, junior Cheyenne DelaGarza picked up the lone RBI of the day for NSU as she doubled to right center and sent Natalie Landry home.
Tara McKenney gave the Lady Demons their final run of the day in the sixth as she singled to center field and was forced to third on a line-out by Brittany Virgoe. McKenney advanced home on a wild pitch by senior pitcher Meagan Bond (8-2)
The Lady Demons held the Cowgirls close in the first game, allowing only one run to cross the plate as freshman standout Emily Vincent was walked and crossed the plate off of a single to left field by Taylor Goree.
Senior Kylie Roos (6-1) threw six complete innings allowing only two hits while striking out three in the 1-0 loss.
Senior Brooke Boening (5-3) and freshman Baylee Gray combined for six innings in the circle in game two to allow eight hits.
