A 4-2 victory over Wisconsin-Parkside saw the Eagles break a scoreless tie with a run in the fourth, two in the fifth and one in the sixth. Junior left fielder Ally Farrah and junior second baseman Kalene Freshour each had two hits, while senior pitcher Sarah Alley scattered seven hits, two runs (one earned) and four walks in a complete-game victory.

The Eagles will finish play in Illinois on Sunday (Feb. 28) at 11 a.m. against Missouri S&T.
