Jennifer Stock was 1-for-2 with an RBI and a base-on-balls. Scotlin Hurley was masterful from the pitching rubber, firing a four-hitter at the Greyhounds, striking out four and walking three.

Against Fort Scott, Alexa Blackwell ignited the Lady Pirates offense in game one with a lead-off double, followed by a two-run homer by Hurley, who added a double and two additional RBI's to her game. Blackwell scored three runs in a 6-2 win. Hurley threw a complete game three-hitter to get the win, striking out six.

In game two, North Central blasted Fort Scott by a score of 16-5. NCMC put up 20 hits and scored consistently through all seven innings. Hailey Lowery was 5-for-6 with a double, 4 RBI's, and three runs scored. Hurley was 4-for-5 with a double, five runs scored, and three RBI's. Jennifer Stock was 2-for-4 with a home run and 3 RBI's. Macie Kinsey threw seven innings to get the win, giving up nine hits while striking out five batters.

North Central returned home after the games in Fort Scott, beginning preparation for a four-game weekend series against Three Rivers Community College. Saturday's doubleheader starts at 2 o'clock, with Sunday's double-dip at 2 o'clock, with all four contests to be played at Mark Griffin Memorial Field adjacent to Trenton High School. Heading into the weekend, the Lady Pirates overall record sits at 20-13. Their region record is 10-4.
