Junior Olivia Alvarez recorded the Lions only hit of the game, as the Gael's silenced the bats of the Lions. The Gaels put senior slugger, Sam Fischer out of commission for game one by walking her four times, never once giving her an at bat.
Kelly Sarginson was able to add a run to the Lions side of the scoreboard on a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning to drive in Fischer who was intentionally walked each time.
Junior Dana Waldusky (15-9) took the loss for the Lions in game one, giving up four hits and striking out one. Saint Mary's Jessica Lemmon held the Lions to one hit, striking out four.

The Lions offense looked to bounce back early in the second game. With the bases loaded in the top of the first inning Kelly Sarginson drive in two RBIs off a single to left field. This would be the last time the Lions would lead, as Saint Mary's came back in the bottom of the first to score three runs.
Olivia Alvarez's solo home run in the third inning was not enough for the Lions to fight off Saint Mary's as they dropped the second game of the series, 5-3.
Molly Medeiros (15-8) took the loss for the Lions, giving up six hits and striking out two.
The Lions will close out their 2012 season with two games Sunday against Saint Mary's starting at 12 and 2 pm.
