And thanks to a four-run first inning, the Lady Darts were able to hang on to a late Northridge charge and win 5-2 to mark the team’s fourth win in the last five games.
The Darts initial outburst was aided by Autumn Woodfall and Cheyenne Norton, who each belted a home run to help give Davis a four-run lead after the first inning.
Two innings later in the Darts’ half of the third, they were able to scratch across a run to extend their lead to 5-0 while holding the Knights scoreless.
Devaney Gelter took the rubber for the Darts and performed well, allowing just five hits and two runs to get the win while the defense did its part in being error-free in the game.
The Lady Knights were able to start a rally in the bottom of the seventh, scoring two runs and threatening with more during their final three outs.
But the Darts were able to keep Northridge from scoring to extend the game.
Norton was only a triple away from hitting for the cycle.
