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.

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.
